I had a great time in California seeing family and friends. A highlight of my trip was visiting with my friend, jewelry artist Robyn Parrish. Robyn has two shops on Etsy, one offering her custom jewelry in The French Circus and another selling jewelry supplies in The Paris Carousel.
Robyn's romantic assemblage jewelry is created from pieces found at flea markets, antique stores, gem shows and thrift stores. Her home, like her jewelry and clothing, reflects a love of the past.
Robyn adores the 18th century, Victorian fashion and Art Deco. These periods inspire her decor. Small vignettes showcase a blend of soft romance with tarnished age. Romantic statues adorned with jewelry, feathers and ribbons pose in the corners. Teacups, white ware and hobnail glass all whisper of times past.
Her jewelry assemblages mix rhinestones, medals, rosaries, cameos and other charms together much like the treasures found at a Paris flea market. Her love of all things French informs her designs as much as her love of that which is tarnished, crusty and old.
Its clear jewelry is Robyn's calling, a visible manifestation of her creative personal style. She spends much of her free time either designing or hunting for materials to inspire her art and that passion shows in the magical array offered in her shops.
If you're enamoured with romantic jewelry you must visit Robyn's shops to see all the treasures she's created for sale.
Thank you Robyn for allowing me to share your lovely home on the Teacup Incident blog!
