Flower Power

Hi everyone. Deer widows weekend really threw my creative groove off. But I'm back and with some new great flower pins to add to any wardrobe.



Each one was made from scraps of left over material from other projects. I love the diverse patterns. I try to use all the material I can. Waste not right? Check out www.kalipsoskreations.artfire.com to see more of my creations that are available for purchase. Thanks for stopping by..

Finally finished some really unique headbands. Feathers are all the rage right now.
I have seen a ton of flower accented headbands but not very many feather ones.
Here are my first feather headband designs.

Black and White Guinea Feathers are accented with rhinestones
and attached to a re-purposed silver buckle.


Brown Turkey Feathers and Dyed Ostrich Feathers are
accented by rhinestones and attached to a
re-purposed silver buckle.

This is one of my newest refashions. It was a long sleeve one button blazer.
I turned it into a short sleeve, just above the elbow jacket. With the
addition of a flower pin, it goes from drab to fab. Check out http://kalipsoskreations for more
new items.

All Wrapped Up in Wire

Hi everyone. Todays newest additions are wire wrapped earrings.
I originally had them accented with feathers, but found they were not as appealing.
These are accented with repurposed purple tear drop beads
 I had from a necklace I never wore.

These have the same wire wrapped hoop as the ones above 
Except  I used one rhinestone instead of three.
The glass Fucshia pendant is enough pizzaz for this one.

Feathers, Feathers everywhere

 This set is made of all brand new parts. The feathers are
dyed ostrich feathers on a post earring.
 This set is made from a reconstructed necklace I've had.
 The feathers and earring
findings are new.
These are the first set of Feather Earrings I created.
I reused a lot of old jewelry parts but the earring finds are new.
There is something about recycling that part of the earring that I just can't do.
