I Heart Brandon Flowers

OK, confession time: I have a teensy, tiny, little girl crush on Brandon Flowers (lead singer of The Killers for those who don't know). I know this post is totally not jewelry-related, but I thought it would be fun all the same.

Anyway, my wonderful husband (whom I love very much, not just a little girl crush) was nice enough to go with me to the Brandon Flowers concert at The Depot in SLC this last Wednesday, and I took some pictures on my crappy phone camera. Not the best quality, but here they are:

I had a great time and he put on such a great show. Hearing him sing his album live, it makes me feel a lot better about Flamingo (his first solo album), even if I'm still not entirely sure what he was thinking when he wrote "Swallow It". I just love how much passion he puts into his music, you know? You can find videos of the SLC performance here (better quality than my pictures, I promise):

Oh, and here's some new jewelry so I can kinda stay on topic here:

The Carousel Necklace II - $16.50

Check out my shop for more new jewelry, I'll have some new Christmas stuff soon, too! Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Vampire Earring Tutorial

I've been wanting to do this tutorial ever since I started this blog--now it's finally here! I apologize in advance for the lackluster photos, but it's dreary and gray here and I didn't feel like heavily editing my pictures. To get to the tutorial, go to this flickr link:

Simply click through the pictures and it goes through how to make them step by step! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

P.S. Do you love my Vampire Earrings, but don't feel like making them yourself? They're always available for purchase in my Etsy shop here:

I Heart Mustaches!

I don't know why I heart mustaches! On guys, they're kinda weird, like a creepy uncle* you had when you were 10, but by themselves: awesome! Recently, I was excited to find these cute mustache charms and couldn't wait to create something with them; this little baby is the result:

The Mustache Necklace - $17.00

Totally awesome, if I do say so myself! Almost makes me want to buy a monocle and a top hat. Which brings me to other mustache thing I love--enjoy!

Craft Show Display

So I set up my jewelry display at Sweet Tweets Boutique today! Here are the pictures:

I'm way excited for the show to actually start! Just a reminder, it goes from tomorrow, April 16th from 10-6:30 to Saturday, April 17th from 10-5. Also, I was making the driving directions way more complicated than they had to be, so after you get off Bangerter at 13400 South, keep going for a few minutes until you get to a stop sign at 6400 West/Rose Canyon Rd. and turn left, keep going on 6400 West until you get to Butterfield Parkway/14200 South and turn right, then just keep going down that road until you see the model home on your left on Palo Alto Drive. It should be fun, I hope you guys are as excited as I am!

Sweet Tweets Boutique

I am excited to announce that I will be selling my jewelry at Sweet Tweets Boutique next weekend (April 16th and 17th); it's a local favorite and there are a lot of great vendors, so be sure to check it out! It will be held in a beautiful model home in Herriman; because it's so new the address is kinda hard to map, but don't worry because here are the directions!

Coming from north or south I-15:
1. take exit 289 for Bangerter Highway
2. head west on Bangerter
3. turn left at 13400 South (just as Bangerter starts to turn north)
4. at the Smith's, turn left onto Rosecrest Drive
5. turn right at Mirabella Lane (just past a park and a speed sign)
6. take the third left onto Emmeline Drive
7. take the first right onto Butterfield Parkway
8. turn left at Palo Alto Drive, the model home is on the corner, very hard to miss!

Here is the basic Google map of the location:

I'll have pictures up soon of what my display looks like, I'll also be selling a lot of exclusive items that won't be posted in my Etsy shop! I hope to see you all there!
