The Gatsby Collection

Is everyone else as excited as I am to see the new Gatsby film, which comes out next week?  I read the book just a few years ago (I know, but better late than never!), and can't wait to see the characters and costumes come to life (and in 3D no less!)!  As a tribute, I came up with a little 'Gatsby' collection from the jewelry studio...

Authentic Art Deco pieces from the 1920s mingle with gemstones and a touch of whimsy...

The earrings on the left feature vintage steel cut beaded bow-shaped shoe buckles!
This 'daisy' necklace below mixes lots of rhinestone dazzle with a bit of innocence in the Virgin Mary medal.

And just for fun, I created a piece that gives a nod to Jay Gatsby's infamous car...

As sometimes happens when I first list items on Etsy and then blog about them, the following two 'zelda' pieces already got snatched up by one of my sweet regular customers.  I hope she will love this old paste dress clip, accented with Art Deco blue glass and filigree links.

... And of course these matching earrings...  ;)
Since it's technically still Friday (though late in the day), I'll leave you with this spoof on the original 'Great Gatsby' book cover.  Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!  x o
