All That Glitters

Can you believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner?  This year is flying by, and there have been lots of changes in my life, but one thing remains constant:  my love of vintage jewelry!  Lol!
This week I've been inspired by the rich golden hues of autumn and have incorporated lots of gold and warm silvers into the mix.  This gorgeous mourning cameo heart pendant is actually a clay reproduction of an original Victorian gutta percha piece, created by my good friend Danette Darbonne of French Queen's Ransom.  She has this and other fabulous supplies in her shoppe, so please check it out!  Danette was gracious enough to allow me to create a necklace using one of her first castings...
I am always taken in by pendants featuring historical women, such as Joan of Arc and the Virgin Mary!
Gold, anyone?  ;)
Please stay tuned next time for a very sparkly new collection I'm dreaming up, perfect for the holidays, and news of another project I'm working on.  (Fingers crossed that it goes as planned!)  :)  Have a beautiful week, mes amis!  :)


  1. As always Robyn - your work features uniquely beautiful surprises. I love the delicacy of the clay piece re-created by Danette!

  2. Hi Robyn, I temporarily deleted my Google account so I have to be "anonymous." Thank you for making one of your beautiful creations out of my faux gutta-percha pendant. You really are remarkable. I am sorry I didn't get to visit sooner. It's been a busy week for me! TTYS! Danette :)
