Fall Fashion Trend: Let There Be Layers

Fall Fashion Trend: Let There Be Layers

Wanna know what our favorite fall fashion trend is? Layering of course! Layering is the perfect solution to the slight chill in the air, lending itself to the changing climate over the course of the day. When there is a slight nip in the morning, a scarf and blazer take care of the cold, while they can easily be peeled off mid-day when the sun decides it doesn't want to let summer go quite yet.

Wrap necklaces are the perfect type of jewelry to rock with a layered outfit. You can add them with other necklaces, or let them stand out on their own. (They can handle it.)

Check out an easy (and affordable!) layered outfit below. Click on the links below the image to shop each article of clothing.

Evil Queen Cosplay

  • Apr 18 2016

Comic conventions are best for a lot of reasons, dressing up in cosplay not small among them.

Not one to shy from a head-to-toe cosplay Virginia Fojtik attended this year's Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, Washington decked out head-to-toe as the Evil Queen from the hit television series, Once Upon A Time.

To complete her outfit, Virginia had me design and create an original necklace inspired by her costume.

I used a lacy red applique and adorned it with black and red glass seed beads, sparkling rhinestones, and designed an original red apple glass cabochon to rest at its center.

The results? Let me just say this...

Snow White's got nothin' on THIS!

Filed Under: What Those Glass Eyes Are Used For

I love seeing all of the amazing and original things customers use my glass eye designs for. As a perfect example, take a look at this fantastic wooden cat clock, created and shared with permission by Dennis Prater.

Cat Clock

Dennis used these 25mm blue and green, Cheshire-inspired glass cat eyes to bring his wooden clock to life. The result is simply too fun not to share!

Fashion Board: That's Just Peachy

That's Just Peachy

Greet summer in this stylish and fun outfit, all in peach! The flowly blouse flirts beneath a hand-beaded, sequin collar necklace, and the elegant touches of a hand-held clutch and sparkling beaded anklet tie the whole thing together. As the season warms up you'll want an outfit that feels cool and easy, but without having to sacrifice style. Going with breezy skirts, strappy sandals, and nautical colors does the trick. (Not to mention: peach is one of the most decadent shades of them all. Don't you just want to eat this outfit up!?)

While the blouse featured in this fashion board is a steep $465 from Mulberry, and even the clutch will cost you a Benjamin from Shopbob, you can snag the handmade Peter Pan collar necklace for just $20 here, and the sparkling ankle bracelet for just $12 here.
