Princess Dreams......


Playing with jewels and sparkling dangles is such a deeply feminine experience for me. I have always been a "girly-girl" at heart! As a little girl I remember the thrill of opening my grandmother's jewelry drawer and my sweet aunt's special box containing all her "dress up" jewels. The same emotion washed over me as I sat on my Aunt's antique sofa watching Cinderella for the first time! Pure magical delight! I suppose these treasures rekindle that innocent childhood fantasy of being all dressed up to dance at the ball! There was always a handsome prince to delicately place a strand of precious jewels around the princess's neck too (pardon me, my fantasy is getting away with me..heehee). You can see more of this original altered art necklace on Etsy.
