MISS MINNETTE CHOSES HER NEW YEAR OUTFIT............



I've posted before about my dress form....Miss Minnette...... She has been busy choosing her outfit for New Year's Eve.

She is an accessory gal like me and so she always goes for those that have a little bling and are a  little different.  This year she has chosen the pendant necklace you see above.


She never goes anywhere without her pearls and she does love to pile on the accessories.

The pendant you see above was made by MOI.....using soup can lids and junk jewelry.  Yes......I said soup can lids....oops....I guess there is a chewing can tobacco lid in their too. (O:    Oh.....and an old pop bottle cap is what the bling sits on...


Here is a shot of the back.  I'm taking a class in making Jewelry from JUNK.....oh boy....do I ever love it.


It is being taught at the Shemer Art Center in Phoenix....
This piece may be a little much for many of you....but I do like distinctive jewelry pieces.

I actually planned this piece to be worn with the jacket you see here.  Notice the button detail and how it ties in with the  necklace.

Anyway....I think Miss Minnette will be the bell of the ball.....  SHE LIKES THAT!!
teehee

Let's all have a blingie day.....(O:

  12. The velvet jacket is to die for...
    and that necklace is perfect with the jacket.

    The lace cami and the roses add the right amount of femininity.

    She will be the belle of the ball.
