The Royal Blue - Marie-Antoinette

Marie Antoinette inspired the “Royal Blue” choker designed and presented here. The inspiration she offered for this beaded jewelry design initially came from her genuine warmth and caring attitude toward others. She challenged aristocracy’s rigidity and formality, and adhered to her own moral values, including barring aristocrats involved in adulterous affairs.

Inspired by her character, I conducted a little further research discovering just how controversial her life was, and I was further inspired by her love of the fine arts, dance, and fashion. A great deal can be said about her wardrobe and her sense of aesthetics, however, the most interesting fact is that her genuineness had a simplicity to it that brought a greater degree of modesty to the elaborate fashions of France toward the end of the 1700’s.

Pearls : The Queen of Gems

I have a life-long love affair with pearls. I love them all; all
shapes, sizes, forms, and colors, and of course I prefer the natural
over the synthetic ones. Pearls being all-time classics have adorned
fashion icons year-after-year. Known as “The Queen of Gems,” the pearl
symbolises wisdom and faith; which we can all use from time-to-time,
dont you think? LOL! Well, I am talking for myself anyway, and I
surely can!

Work in progress...

Beadworking and finding time to promote your work is a challenge! With all the avenues that are existing pertaining to social media networking to make you visible on the internet can become really time consuming and make you lose track of your goal.
