modern cocktail ring

a modern take on the diamond cocktail ring, made popular in the mid 20th century. this is the first in a series that examines the almost ridiculous nature of these rings, gaudy, ostentatious, and a blatant show of wealth.

materials: silver, polymer clay, feathers

featured on smashing darling

i found a nice surprise today, my button ring was featured on the smashing darling front page.

vintage glass!!!

i am in love with these vintage glass components that i recently found. i love the idea that these have a past history, maybe they were once part of a treasured piece of jewelry, maybe they sat in a box in a factory unloved for the past 5o years. they are so unique and i am excited to give them new life and a new look. available for purchase at my etsy store, or my store on smashing darling.

Bazaar will showcase local artists, craftspeople, musicians, and of course wine. it is taking place on Sunday, June 3 from 12-5pm at Mosaic Wine Lounge. located at the intersection of W Jones and Glenwood ave in Raleigh, NC.
