Portrait Pieces...

Hello my friends, hope everyone has been enjoying this lovely Spring weather and getting on with some serious creating! I definitely have been at the design bench this week and here is a peek at what has sparked the creative frenzy this go around....

Portrait Pieces....

...I just Love, Love, Love, creating with old images. Whether they are hand-painted, antique engravings or old photos from days gone by, portrait pieces always make for a stunning centerpiece in a jewelry design....


...and coming soon....portrait pieces on cuffs and bangles!!




The piece below is Victorian and from Europe. The portrait under the beveled glass and inside its filigree frame is just amazing. I found the piece buried under a pile of chains in a little old antique store...





A French Prayer card portrait piece with sacred heart chain...




...and the beautiful Victorian watch fob makes this portrait piece really special....




We also gave the boys their "Spring Cleaning"  this past week....

Steve was NOT happy about it...



Milo didn't seem to mind too much....


...I just had to share these with you because they were just so darn cute!!!


More pictures of these "Portrait Pieces" coming to my Etsy shop this evening...
Take Care my friends, and see you back here in a few days!!!
