"Charming" creations...

(click on the photo to enlarge)


Meet Miss Mildred...surrounded by all her finery. How "charming" is she? Well, believe it or not, in a past life, her vintage created photo and hand-placed Swaroski crystal frame was once a plain 'ol button cover? Yes, this is true, I kid you not! Of course, Miss Mildred would never admit to this as she is a lady of means and would faint away with the vapors if her society friends were ever to find out. So, mums the word, okay?

By clicking on the photo...you will be able to view her finery and see Mildred up close. On inspection of her photo it appears to have water damage. This was done on purpose to give the photo an aged and worn look. The photo is protected by a clear acrylic disk.




His "Royal Highness"...baby Emannuel, sat for his monthly photo session with the Royal Portrait Photographer. His mother insists that he wear the crown he was born to...of course, little Emmanuel isn't very happy and gave the RPP a very hard time!

Emannuel's mother wears her son's photo proudly...it is encased in a vintage repurposed earring, which is framed by an antique silver finding (made from an early 1900's mold.) Lovely Swaroski crystal briolettes dangle on each side of a sweet dragonfly. Enameled flowered stations and grey pearls link the crystal rosary to an antique silver pendant holder. (photo protected by clear acrylic disc)


Before the famed Miss Loreli Bling was discovered in 1923 by the ever handsome and famous movie mogul, Todd Charming... News Hounds discovered her to be a lady of ill repute!

In her former station in life she was a mere hollowed-out pendant. Since her new creation, her photo (protected by a clear acrylic disc), with the finest of Swaroski crystals have been handset and repurposed to the glitz and glamour she has come to expect. Of course, the blue-green enameled and crystal pendant (oops! I mean photo holder), had been meticulously selected to match her eyes. To further compliment her eyes and "photo holder" are sweet crystals of pink and blue dangles.

The beautiful Abigal has been his prisoner for centuries...

He has captured her beauty behind multiple rows of exquisite rhinestones and sealed her confines with tea stained lace. To insure her vision will never escape he has finished her imprisonment by affixing a large vintage plating with taupe colored pearls applied to all four sides to seal her fate. (photo protected behind clear glass)

What her captor doesn't realize is that she could never be fully his, as her lover has given her the key to his heart, and a lock of his hair has been placed in her vintage flowered locket. These items with her diamonds she holds close, as to sustain her santity...

Hi Janee!
Thanks for visiting! I really appreciate your kind words and encouragement! I only wish there were more hours in the day to create...i'm addicted!!! lol Sometimes, I am at a loss for words when it comes to blogging. I just thought I would be a little kooky this time.

Thank you so much for your support! You are the one who has been there to nudged me along. I really appreciate it! You know, we are always our worst critics and I feel so liberated to express my creativeness! I've never considered myself much of a writer. Again, it's just something that tends to intimidate me...so thank you for your kind words and support!
I hope you enjoy wearing the turquoise necklace...it enhances your outside beauty so much!
Sending a big hug your way...

Debby, regarding the comment you just left on my blog, you may want to check with Kim at Today's Creative blog...I think she is no longer accepting donations from bloggers for her auction. I think she's overwhelmed with it all. Mine was the 50th donation and she still has more!
