A word from the artist:
I love the perky little tie on this top and the sweet little puffed sleeves. It makes me think secretary, somehow. The soft sage and tan print are fun without shouting, but the sleeves and tie will get you noticed.
Summer is here with it's warmth and color. Find something to wear to that special event or just to make you smile. Retro fashions inspire me and you'll find lots of handmade retro goodness to love as you browse the shop. I create from the design up limited edition or one of a kind items. Some are from new materials and others are made of recycled fabrics. I love to find vintage fabrics or sometimes clothing that needs re-thinking and do something fun!!

So many years ago I went to Cancun with a college buddy. Way back when before all the high-rise hotels were built along the white sand shores. The color of these beads remind me of the color of the ocean there.
medium-sized turquoise rectangle beads surround a large silver-toned oval bead. interspersed are smaller turquoise beads and silver findings. piece is closed off with a toggle clasp and dangling heart charm.
SQUARE BEADS: 3/4 inch x 1/2 inch
OVAL BEAD: 1 inch x 1/2 inch
