Bracelet Layering by Melissa

Unleash your inner rock goddess...
Zephyr, Rennes, Alene, Barbara, and Carina bracelets

There's something almost rock 'n roll about having an arm full of bracelets. I remember having a poster of the seminal cool 80's band, X, on my bedroom wall and admiring the way their singer Exene Cervenka used to pile up her vintage bracelets on her arm. Exene, by the way, is not only a great singer, but also a fantastic poet and ex-wife to both bandmate John Doe AND actor Viggo Mortensen. Lucky lady indeed. It must've been something about those bracelets...

Come Visit Me...

I have another fun trunk show coming up this Friday at Blue Windows in Long Beach. I'll have many one of a kind pieces with stones and diamond slices that look amazing against engraved gold. I can't believe I have sold my wares to this store for ten years and am looking forward to finally seeing the store with my own two eyes. I spent some high school years living in Seal Beach right next to the Belmont Shore area where the store is so I am so looking forward to seeing that area again. I was one of two girls in town who seriously surfed back in the early 80's--this will be a trip down memory lane.

Here are some lovely posts from Heather's blog: The address is 5276 East 2nd Street, Long Beach and the phone number is 562-434-7195. The event is from 1 to 6 so please do come visit me if you are in the area.
