Storytellers...


Hello mes amis, I hope everyone is having a lovely Memorial Day weekend right about now. As for me, the holiday has been full of fun creating and designing these little baubles I call storytellers...here's a peek....


The "Napoleon et Josephine" necklace portrays the lovely romance of the famous emperor and his Lady Josephine....


...a sparrow's ring placed in the center of the necklace symbolizes their eternal love...






Another necklace, inspired by Memorial Day and our fathers who have 
served our countries...


The "My Papa Was A War Hero" necklace pays homage to all of our forefathers who gave their lives in battle so we could be free...


...layers of vintage gold watch chains and crystal rosary strands...


...an old ruby ring, a former cloak clip...


...a vest watch fob piece, vintage photo and old war medals...


...all come together to tell the story of Papa...





The "Sainte Mere" (Holy Mother) Necklace made with an old French prayer card and beautiful gold Victorian slide chain and seed pearl slide charms. Simple yet elegant...




The "RĂªver de Paris" necklace...


...symbolizes the memory of a special trip to Paris...
with it's rhinestone pieces, vintage souvenir photo album...




....Le Opera souvenir clasp...


...and it's old mother of pearl rosary strands....the necklace tells the story of a holiday of a lifetime dear to one's heart...
