New Crochet Jewelry designs

It's been an exciting year!  Last January, when I first launched über-craft, I had no idea that by August I would be receiving orders for some of my jewelry designs. I'm happy to report the crochet necklaces I began selling at MINT this Summer did very well, and several orders later progressed into several new designs. Here are pics of some of the latest styles.  

The Droplet is a delicate lariat-style necklace that can be also be worn wrapped around the wrist as a bracelet, or doubled as a choker. 

Tiny glass beads crocheted on metallic thread achieve a modern, yet delicate effect reminiscent of something one might find floating in the sea.

The Princess, a choker-style necklace, is studded with semi-precious beads like coral, labadorite and pink opal with tiny ethiopian brass and silver beads.

These styles are currently available at MINT in Mill Valley, along with the original Ethiope style.  Pictured here below is a recent batch of the Ethiope that was created for GOODS in Santa Monica.  Please stay tuned for more styles and our online shop in 2013!

Crochet jewelry now available at MINT

As a prop stylist, I've frequented a lot of boutiques, and I have to say that MINT in Mill Valley, CA is hands-down, one of my all-time favorites. Carefully curated and focused on design-centric products, I was delighted when owner, Cecile Wong, asked if she could carry some of my crochet jewelry.

Garden Tea Party for Pottery Barn Kids

This year marks my ninth year of styling for Pottery Barn Kids, and I must be having fun because time has really flown by! Over the years of collaborating with the fantastic team at PBK, I have had the opportunity to dream up and create all kinds of fun craft and decorating ideas for their nurseries, and kids rooms. They recently launched a wonderful Parties and Celebrations online library of inspiration, templates, videos and recipes, and I thought I'd share some highlights from the parties I styled for it - as well as the how-to videos I hosted. The Garden Tea Party is the very first one we did, and is one of my favorites!

To transform our girls into little fairies, we created these quick and easy tutus by sewing a few folds of tulle to a long satin ribbon.  They sat on chairs decorated with ribbons and oversized tissue paper flowers happily sipping tea and munching on delicious mini mushroom cupcakes under the canopy.

Here are some of the other craft ideas: Paper Flower Invitations, Fruit Wands, Flower Crowns, and a Giant Crepe Paper Flower Pinata. For more how-to details and videos
