New Accessories by Norwegian Wood

Displayed on the lovely jewelry holders made by Hilary (aka. Catchframes), available at HQ

Most of my friends probably think I pretty much just sew logs all day (sometimes it kind of seems like I do)...but it's really not true. Although I'm often mailing out a log order or working on something "log pillow related", I 'm not actually sewing the darn things 24/7. I'm able to find time to do some regular sewing and designing, as well as put together a few jewelry pieces. I find it very relaxing, and also like the fact that I can grab my stuff and plop in front of the TV, but still feel like I've accomplished something after watching 2 hours of HGTV. I don't consider my jewelry to be anywhere near the level of some of the other designers we carry at HQ (Aria , Roadkill and Nea come to mind!) but nevertheless I continue doing it, and hope some others will think they're outfit-worthy.

I mentioned my fringe necklaces previously here on the blog, but now I've gone a little fringe crazy and done some up in black and olive green (in addition to the original champagne colour) and have even done a super long fringe necklace that I am in love with.


On a much more simple note, I put together these little old-timey telephone charm necklaces and love the great copper colour of them, perfect for fall. Lastly I made this mash up necklace using different colours of chain, some vintage sequins and some vintage cotton lace in a GORGEOUS blue/turquoise colour. The little 1950s plastic charm was a last minute addition, so cute.

Anytime! Just shoot me an e-mail or give us a call at the store. The necklaces have amazing movement and could be photographed so well...much better than I'm able to!

Best,
Angie

Hi!
Love your collection! The fringe jewellery is really cool! I'm a girl from Norway, and I'm a little curious why you called your collection Norwegianwood?
