Hand Dyed Velvet…

{Hand Dyed Velvet}

 

I found a woman in Dallas that hand dyes the most gorgeous silk velvets.  I have always been leery of velvet, I had a pair of velvet leggings as a child and I believe that must have been the turning point in my love/hate relationship with the fabric.   I learned quickly what’s not cool.  Its velvet leggings.

I’m incorporating velvet into my jewelry line for holiday and found her online.  Her colors are rich and she has so many to choose from.  Maybe everyone is getting velvet pillows for Christmas.

 

Busy Weekends…

I have a trunk show for my jewelry at a friend’s boutique coming up this week and needed to get up early and start finally putting together pieces for the show.  My desk looks like a jewelry bomb went off.

After a morning of jewels, this afternoon I am meeting a friend for the Dallas Flea Market and a trip to We Are 1976.  I am ecstatic, the show has vendors from around the Dallas area, vintage, jewelry, furniture, food, etc.  I am hoping to find some unique furniture for the house.

I need some.  Desperately…
