The theme chosen for February was Royalty Thoughout Time. I chose as my inspiration, Princess Grace of Monaco and created a simple, yet elegant, necklace that I like to think she might have enjoyed wearing.
One other nice development came from my showing off. Another co-worker wanted something special for her daughter's prom and asked if I could make something. They didn't have a dress yet but were leaning strongly toward pink. On a whim, I went ahead and made up a couple of designs in pink to show her. This is the one she chose:
Again, this has sparked the idea of creating more simple, yet pretty and elegant, designs for my shop. It was so funny through all of this that although I don't make a secret of my side business, and in fact talk about it a lot, I kept hearing comments like, "I didn't know you made things like this!" Well, now you do. Guess I need to show off more often!
