AND then having it published.
If you look in my studio, you would say I have an infatuation with vintage rhinestones. I choose to call it my collection thank you =) Every once in a while it all comes together. Know that feeling? It is when you take that certain piece, lay it down on the table, take it apart, and then start adding pieces back to it. Ultimately it becomes a whole. A piece worthy to be worn or sold....or sent to a magazine in hopes it will be published.
Gorgeous creamy velvet on the outside, luscious soft satin in the inside....with a topper that almost made my heart stop.
The satin inside had the most soft buttery glow.
My mind drifted to a day.....
A day I would see my daughter in her wedding dress.
And, that is where it all began.
Often there is so much more behind the piece that's not shared in the magazine. I understand, as there are space restraints.
But, just like Paul Harvey would say..... here is the rest of the story.
I sponged the textured box, which held the necklace, with Ranger Distress Ink~Tea Stained. Then I used a favorite swirly design stamp, using more Distress Ink~Walnut Stain, to add additional depth to the box.
I wrapped the necklace in soft creamy tissue before placing it inside. Tied it up with just the right color of vintage seam binding.
Then, laid it in the box.
But, there is still more......
To my Daughter
How can a satin lined box hold all my wishes?
Or velvet coverd one
be filled with years of hugs and kisses?
