This piece was inspired by a few of my favorite things. First of all, hearts! I find myself using the sacred heart and Ex Voto Relics & Artifacts® a lot in my jewelry creations. They are just a fabulous symbol of love and caring, which I think the world needs more of.
Second, I collect antique fabrics and silk velvet is one of my favorites. I love the way it shimmers and shines. It's also so soft to the touch.
Third, turquoise! This is one of my favorite colors. I really love the way pink and turquoise look together.
And last but not least, rhinestones! I think that adding rhinestones makes any piece look rich and elegant!
So after combining a few of my favorite things this Ex Voto mosiac cuff is what I came up with.
What are a few of your favorite things to use? Why not take a page out of my book and combine them into a uniquely special piece of wearable art!
