Welcome back for the second blog hop of three. We have really been learning alot so far. My brain is fried. Brenda is so informative with her information. I really think she's a encyclopedia. Since the last blog we have learned the differences in the different jewelry history, fashion,what designers speak to us,and what our own styles are. Do you know your jewelry style and the history of the style or even the design? What type of designs speak to you?
There have been alot of designers that speak to me now,since doing the class. I didn't know alot of them. just knew how I wanted my jewlery to look and what I like. Early on in my life Coco of Chanel is the one that I can truly remember. Who doesn't remember the purfume? I had a bottle of it. Oh how I thought I had something!
Coco was a extraordinary woman from perfume to the run ways, and her own style of jewelry.
Thanks to Coco we now have costume jewelry! 1930 she began making jewelry, which until then was rarely worn unless real. It's funny we're fond of things from the past.
Who doesn't like what Lucille Ball is wearing. Designed by, Joseff of Hollywood.
Isn't this a beauty. Do you know the history of this?
Ranee Lalique, designed this. You may be asking yourself what was he thinking. If you get the chance research this history on his incrediable designs, you will find yourself drawn to his work as so many of us are.
I can't speek enough about this designer, Miriam Haskell.
Miriam Haskell was an American designer of costume jewelry. With creative partner Frank Hess, she designed affordable pieces from 1920 through the 1960s. Her vintage items are eagerly collected and her namesake company continues.Well, you have it. These are the designer that speak to me the most from the past to now. Though I didn't know it.
Fashion is always changing isn't it. It's funny how it always comes back around. I remember wanting a pair of bell bottom jeans even cried for a pair at 12 years of age. As I recalled they came back a couple of years ago, didn't stay as long. Taking this class I have found that jewelry is the same, or maybe it's how we veiwed it.
Wow, the brooch is back. I remember my Grandmother wearing those on her coat. My thought then, old people jewelry. I love a brooch but it needs some flair. We're bringing back the tassells, now that's great! I love tassells. There are so many styles from our past that have made it back to the runways, I could go on and on.
Audrey landed in Vogue, the biggest fashion magazine.It has been around for ages.
This guy I don't think would make it on Vogue cover, but he sure did manage to come down the runway right into my arms. This is my husband many years ago, and yes; this was a fashion trend.
I'm going to leave you with a little teaser. If you recall from the last blog my challenge is the brooch with the theme roses.
These are Victorian style stampings that I'm using. They can be found at http://www.bsueboutiques.com at B'sue Boutiques. If you want to know how this turn out... well, you have to come to the next blog hop April 1 2016. Remember what I said about the brooch. I think I found the flair I want. Be sure to come back as I reveal this line. Please show your support and leave me comments, and follow me to the other participants blog as we all need your support.
