I can't remember exactly where I was when it happened, but I had come eye to eye with Vanessa Hudgens sporting the ring and it was game on. After that it seemed every time I opened a magazine, there she was wearing
my that ring.
Oh look there she is with the ring again.
Before long my tracking skills (you know those handy ones right ladies? hehe) led me to Melinda Maria (jackpot!) and I discovered her studio wasn't far from the Chef's house. Like any awesome boyfriend he snuck over to pick up a treat for me - at which time he met Melinda and narrowly escaped having his vehicle towed from in front of the building. We know how to make an impression over here at the bird? The following day when I met her, Melinda sparked an even greater love for her designs because of how kind and genuine she is as a person. She has a certain lighthearted, warm quality that quite literally shines through in every piece she creates.
Earlier this month I was so excited to receive an invitation to an event unveiling her new Holiday line. It took place this past Saturday and was an amazingly fun evening filled to the brim with more glitter, sparkle and shine than any girl could ask for. As people were departing I managed to capture a few photos to share with you. Prepare to swoon.
I had come to fill my quota of silver and there were so many
wonderful things to choose from.
Suddenly I glanced up to see all these bracelets...
note Pyramid Spike Bangle on right. Must. Acquire. More.
And how about a few of these piled on with them? Okay - sure thing!
Before you knew it plan 'Acquire More Silver' had been forgotten
and plan 'Acquire Gold, Silver and Whatever I'm in the Mood For'
had been adopted.
All I can say is it was a great time and my jewelry box is aflutter with old and new friends getting to know one another. Oops! One of my favorite things about this jewelry line is how Melinda has designed the pieces to be built upon. You are never left feeling like something is "out", but rather a new item comes alongside to be added to your current collection. Slowly, but surely is my motto with this one!
I hope you've enjoyed this little glimmer into Melinda's latest pieces - if you're making your Christmas/Holiday wish lists, take a peek on her site (I know several of you are already loving it!) and let yourself get excited! Yahoooo for treats for us at the Holidays!!!
Have a great weekend everybody!!
