old is new again, with a dose of style

I really adore anything that bravely nods to vintage style, especially fashion.
 
Ben Ashby of FOLK magazine likewise reveres the past and has a great respect for clothing, textiles and American made designs; he's asked me to do a piece on talented Earth Angels' artist Melody Elizabeth who creates artful jewelry, purses and wearables from vintage textiles, clothing and found treasures. So we started with a photo shoot of Melody's creations...

Here's a peek at some of my fave images...there will be oodles more in the next issue of FOLK magazine -- The Fashion Issue. So stay tuned for news on that!

...and while I  cannot spoil the surprise here...I just had to share a few and say thanks to Ben, give a salute to Melody Elizabeth and a shout out of appreciation to our wonderful models Allison and Danielle.

 Loving these textures and colors...
 We did have fun too...
 Umm, not sure what's going on here...
 Allie tidies a shelf and models at the same time, that girl can multi-task...
 "Where can we go next for out next fashion shoot?", they say...
 The dice earrings are my personal fave, fun, festitve and love Bakelite dice and crystals alike!! You can shop for them and her other jewelry creations here...


I want this one, it;s in Melody's personal collection, but she always brings a few special coats to share at the Country Living Fairs...

  
 And I love her purses, pretty and sturdy at the same time...you can shop for them here...

Thanks to all and stay tuned for more on this article....FOLK magazine and more creations from Melody Elizabeth...

xxoo Jen
