I've been a busy beaver!

So last night I finished the last of my really big projects- I was making 4 "handbags" -for lack of a better word- to be carried down the runway in a fashion show. The show is featuring ocean inspired lingerie and the models will carry giant versions of my Christmas ornaments.

I made two 6" round seashell kissing balls with pearl embellishments, a 5 inch round English Channel sea urchin adorned with pearls and a 7 inch armored starfish, again adorned with pearls.

In the photo you can also see the necklaces I've been working on, another wreath I made and part of a picture frame that I turned into an earring display.

Some close up shots of the finished pieces:

I think these could all really be cute for a beach wedding too- instead of flower girl baskets or even in lieu of bouquets for the bridesmaids- the starfish perhaps as pew decorations if it's a church wedding?... hmmm the wheels are spinning now!

Stay tuned to check out the new boutonnieres I'm working on for another client!

Wow, you have been so busy! I love the pew idea, and it would even work if the bride just wanted to use them on the "reserved" section for families. I can hear it now- "oh, be sure you sit in the starfish section!"

Gorgeous stuff- you have been crazy productive! those round ones look so fiddly but wow, they're gorgeous. I can totally see people carrying those as flowergirls or best maids or what have you.
