COLOR POP! By Pinup Girl Clothing, featuring SparkleLux

I gasped when I finally saw Pinup Girl Clothing's Color Pop! lookbook that they created for their cosmetic stock. Yes, SparkleLux is featured in the campaign. Yes, that made me very, very happy. 
But-- the styling, photography and models were all absolutely phenomenal. 

Here's a sample:

The Scintillating Scallop!

I first introduced my Scallop© shape two years ago, in 2012. 





It is my favorite of all of the shapes that I offer! Definite statement jewelry without being too over-the-top.

Two months ago, I FINALLY introduced the Scintillating Scallop©. (By finally I mean finally finished the unfinished pieces that had been sitting on my work table for almost six months!) These were an immediate hit with SparkleLux fans!


Swirled, pearlescent lucite and embedded rhinestones offer just the right amount of twinkle.


These are the same earrings as the first photo. The colors really morph depending on the lighting!




Photo taken with direct window-filtered sunlight

Same pair as the previous photo. This photo was taken in normal room lighting.


Swoon! I'm very pleased with these. 
I can't wait to share another rhinestone-encrusted pair of earrings that I was commissioned to do by a client last month… they're almost finished. Stay tuned! 

I have a couple pairs of these listed right now in my Etsy shop. Click HERE to get your paws on a pair!

New retailer, new restock, new creations!

Hi, everyone!

I'm finally taking a pause to update this blog. 

Between restocking Pinup Girl Clothing website and boutique, private orders, and working on an order for my newest retailer, Deluxed (formerly Charlotte's Web in Berkeley)… busy is an understatement!

First order of business... my newest retailer! 

Welcome, Viva Charm City, to the SparkleLux family!




Viva Charm City is a web-based business that sells vintage reproduction clothing and accessories. I was super excited to be able to create some new colorways for them to stock. Such as this pair of Starliter© earrings… in Hi-Fi Baby!



Pay them a visit-- they have some very unique stuff in stock.
