New Accessories by Norwegian Wood
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.
