My coworker Alanna, has asked me to make this haircomb for her wedding  similiar to this picture.


 I finally finished it!


This is the perfect hair accessory for formal or bridal wear — its timeless, yet contemporary. It’s elegant, feminine, and striking. Its a versatile hairpiece that compliments any hair style, whether its an updo (recommendations to be worn with a bun or chignon). This also works well with soft curls to create that perfect romantic look.

This pretty metal haircomb features four delicately arranged Fern Leaves made of Swarovski Crystals and Freshwater Pearls. The 4mm Freshwater Pearls were gently handwrapped on silver colored wire, alternating with twinkly dome 4mm Swarovski Cyrstals. The comb is approx 4 inches width x 3 inches length.

Mike and I are heading down to LA tonight. Can’t wait to be home…can’t wait for some good grub…can’t wait to see family…cant wait to see friends…and praying for some SUN.

I was hoping to go to the beach, but it looks like its going to be a cold weekend 😦

On a happy note, I’m wearing my new crocheted ice cream necklace. Sooo cute! I’m totally lovin it. Its handmade from this girl named Emi in Santa Monica. I choose the colors and I’m glad the mint chips came out nicely!

Regular cake in a 13×9 pan


Cut it in the shape of a grand piano. I made some space for the piano keys.


Spread frosting on


Cut Ghiradelli white chocolate for piano keys


I dipped the knife in hot water and dried it so that it would cut the chocolate pieces easier. I also used semi-sweet Ghiradelli milk chocolate for the other keys.


Made a piano bench! And voila….a PIANO Cake!


Play me a song Canon in D Mike!


Oh when the saints go marching in….

Havent made anything in 1 week. Just been so tired and busy at work.

These sorta remind me of grapes 🙂 Lots of twisting involved. I think these are perfect for someone. They have a summery feel to it, and its perfect for the beach. …and her and I love the beach 🙂


I had to redo the ones above because I had the smaller beads on top first then the larger bead drop. Thought it looked kinda funny so I reversed it. I think it looks a lot better. 

Its superbowl Sunday and Im torn as to what to do! I havent been out all weekend (which I dont mind…) so should I go out for a switch of environment or stay in and do what I’ve been doing…(like make jewelry 😀  ) To be continued….
