I found these beautiful glass flowers and brass lockets in the warehouse i discovered. I bought about 10 of each. The glass flower speaks for itself. It makes a beautiful pendent. I bought Jade green, grey, and royal blue. The locket I jazzed up a little with some color, a peace sign and a ceramic rose in resin. The locket is on a vintage chain, which is limited as well. You cant go wrong. These lockets will sell in the boutique for $120. Im selling it to people direct for $55. Customize by helping with design for an extra $10.
More about the flower pendents later.

So! A couple day's ago I walked around the Lower East Side until I felt brave enough to go into this little boutique called "Tulips" to show my jewelry. I asked her if I could show her and she could either buy, or give me positive criticism. She bought! This is VERY exciting!!!!! She is taking a lot! I have been making new jewelry everyday. Some are a little pricey, but I have a couple really affordable little pieces too. I found these brass beads I am obsessed with and will do a collection with. I also made a couple "one of a kind" necklaces. They are made from vintage odds and ends so it would be really hard to re-create. pictures later...

Happy Election Day!! Obama
I was crazzzzyyyy all day yesterday. Besides it being Chris's Birthday, I
was helping Amanda look for a dress for her wedding (which is beautiful) and shopping like crazy for beads and vintage. I have some pieces to put up that are made from old jewelry that I LOVE. I think this is my favorite kind to make so far.

My newest venture is Jewelry Design. I have been collecting Vintage Jewelry from all over the country for the the past year or so. I started to develop a real passion for Jewelry and I really wanted to learn how to create. I have been mixing vintage with new. Even most of my new Jewelry that has been made from scratch is vintage inspired. Kristyn April Designs is completely sweet and quirky with a bit of a hard edge. My favorite material to work with so far is brass. I love the raw look it gives to the jewelry. I will soon be showing some of my pieces and I hope you love them.Enjoy, I hope you love my pieces as much as I loved making them!
