  1. You can soooooo DIY those glasses- just head to the craft store and either pick up some sculpy and make little clay roses and E1000 them onto your appropriate sunglasses; or some fabric roses and just use the wire stems to hold them on!

  2. Hmm, I could theoretically make a version of that first necklace, lots of little beaded circles...Thanks for the inspiration Gail!
    I do share your lust for a lot of these, including the amazing Ms Dietrich. ^_~
