More Acorn Jewelry -- Charm Bracelet
I'm loving acorn-inspired jewelry this year, and at my last show in Northern Virginia, it was a great hit. The bracelet below sold, but I couldn't resist sharing it, because I really was pleased with how it turned out.
I started with vintage chain, this very cool fringy stuff that I bought two years ago. The fringe is triangular rather than the traditional oval or circle -- cool, don't you think? I then added the pearl "acorns", dark green glass charms accented with a bit of coppery Swarovski crystal, and tiny brass birds. (click the picture to enbiggen)
This piece was actually under the table in excess inventory (of which, at the end of the show, there was NONE), and when a customer brought up a pair of the pearl acorn earrings to buy, I had to crawl under the table to show this bracelet to her. She snagged it immediately. I'm just really glad I had the forethought to snap a photo first!
More jewelry will get to the web site as I recuperate from being wiped out of inventory (seriously -- the cupboards are BARE) and as I recuperate from various ouchies and ick. So stay tuned to www.lorianderson.net, particularly the New Designs page. Things will start showing up on an almost daily basis very soon!
