Rock of Ages Movie Inspired Jewelry

Tom Cruise rocks a new look in the movie that's got everyone talking.  In it he truly looks the part of a rock star complete with spikes, studs, chains, and even a gun tatoo.  And the guy can sing, who knew it?  Bring out your inner rock star and become a fashion groupie with mind blowing leather cuffs or perhaps some bullet earrings.

You’re that woman who turns heads whenever you walk into a room, as well as that lady whose killer style has had many replication attempts, but is just too unique to be re-captured, and when you wear this Statement Necklace  it sends them all positively wild! With the 3 vintage copper and brass bullet casings and the Hobe signed floral component your fans won’t be able to decide which they should idolize - your kick-ass  personality or your sense of tastefully ‘distorted’ style!

Style Rut? Just add spikes!

Are you tired of the same old boring look?  Looking for a way to add some pizazz to your look? Just add spikes.  Makes looking good so easy. Spiked jewelry is one fashion trend that is easy to pull off. You don't have to go overboard and wear  spiked clothing, shoes and jewelry. Choose one piece to add a little edge to your look. These leather cuffs are badass. I've added some crystals to throw in a little unexpected twist.  Actions speak louder than words but this style screams--no sound necessary.  So try on some spikes and show your unique style!

Often I am asked how and where I get the inspiration to create my jewelry and accessories. The answer is anywhere and everywhere.   For instance, one day as I took the short walk from my house to my studio, I looked down and saw this beautiful patch of moss .  I just love the contrast of the bright green  against the rusty copper color.  That day I created "Spring Fling".  See the connection?

I  frequently visit antique and vintage shops looking for unique components to make OOAK and unique statement jewelry. Museums and galleries are other great places to get inspired.  Take a walk and see what you might discover. I keep my eyes open and try to see the beauty in everything! I hope this post inspires you to look at things differently.
