Tybee 2015

October 14, 2015 9:02 PM



Here are some pictures from my recent trip to the Tybee Island Pirate Festival 2015. I had a fantastic time visiting with old friends and making new ones! Look for me next at Renningers Steampunk Industrial Show


A Step Back in Time

August 23, 2015 12:57 PM

[gickr.com]_32152232-4ed4-b294-355a-b479dba6955dAs many of you know very soon St. Augustine will be celebrating its 450th Birthday. With that in mind, I have been asked by Anastasia Designs to create some very special bodice jewelry for a 16th century ball gown. I have also created a special choker for Anastasia herself to wear during the fashion show for Oldest City Pirate Weekend. For the former queen at the Tybee Island Pirate Fest I have created a gorgeous bead and pearl girdle belt to match her ball gown. Although I normally live in a retro futuristic steampunk world, I have enjoyed my step back in time!



Getting Ready to Set Sail….

July 29, 2015 6:28 PM

[gickr.com]_64dee4a4-9c86-f4f4-b12d-2cc6113d2214It is always a test of my abilities to get my unique displays set up. Those of you that know me, understand that my booth looks as if you have stumbled into Aunt Matilda’s Attic and must rummage through the trunks and boxes to find treasures. The biggest challenge that I have is untangling necklaces. So in addition to new designs, this weekend at the Vero Beach Pirate Fest, I will also be premiering some new displays!

[gickr.com]_5e126db9-3c8a-2934-d945-1aa63e3e17d5Those of you following Aunt Matilda’s Jewelry Box know that I have been reducing my show schedule. One of the benefits of that is now I have more time to focus on design. I’m not going to do a Spoiler Alert just yet, but the pictures are a hint of what is happening at my work bench. I am in the process of placing my jewelry in stores, Currently my Pirate Line has found a home at The Pirate Store  in St. Augustine
