I finished this necklace last week. My inspiration was a couple of necklaces I saw in an antique mall the day after New Years Day. I just wanted to get out and do nothing, so what better place to go than an antique mall. I saw several things to inspire me. Now I just need some time to do them. The necklace at the mall had a lot more charms than mine. It looked as tho it might be to heavy, and it did not have earrings. One was in pink and the other in purple. I LOVE PURPLE, but I did mine in pink. I love the light pink crystals. I am always finding jewelery at garage sales and I can't keep from buying it. I have a LARGE stash of jewelry. So this necklace was made from my stash. One thing about it, IT IS ONE OF A KIND. I hope you enjoyed looking at one of my creations.
Thank you for stopping by to meet me and hear about My Tattered Elegance.
My name is Pat, I'm a self taught artist, junker and creative person. I paint on nearly any surface, make ribbon roses one petal at a time, do ribbon embroidery, form roses from the oven baked clay. I also do some sewing for my home.
My favorite pasttime is not going shopping at the mall, it is going shopping at a good yard sale, or fantastic estate sale or a big flea market. The thrill of finding that special something is better than chocolate (and I love chocolate). I'm even one of those ladies that stop and load my car with the cast offs on the side of the curb. Some of the curb trash becomes my best finds.
I'm at home here in Fort Worth, Texas and love it. I have a married daughter, Kim. She doesn't have any children only three cats. I also have a married son, Kent. He has two sons, Bryce and camron. Also one daughter, Payton. She is the one that comes and paints with me. And she loves to use my beads to make jewelry. Grand-daughters are so much fun.
