this is the song that inspired the new jewelry collection

BLACK MARKET (Frederick Hollander) Recorded by : Marlene Dietrich; Ute Lemper.

Black Market Sneak around the corner

Budapester Strasse

Black Market Peek around the corner

“La Police qui passe”

Come! I’ll show you things you cannot get elsewhere Come! Make with the offers and you’ll get your share.

Black Market Powdered milk for bikes

Souls for Lucky Strikes

Got some broken down ideals? Like wedding rings?

Spoken: Sh! Tiptoe. Trade your things.

Chorus: I’ll trade you for your candy Some georgeous merchandise My camera. It’s a dandy Six by nine - just your size You want my porcellain figure? A watch? A submarine? A Rembrandt? Salami? Black lingerie from Wien? I’ll sell my goods Behind the screen. No ceiling, no feeling. A very smooth routine You buy my goods, and boy my goods are keen.

Black Market Coocoo clocks and treasures Thousand little pleasures Black Market Laces for the missis, chewing gum for kisses.

Come! And see my big binoculars this week. Price? Only six cartons one puff a peek. Black Market Milk and microscope for liverwurst and soap. Browse around I’ve got so many toys. Spoken: Don’t be bashful Step up, boys.

Chorus: You like my first edition? It’s yours, that’s how I am. A simple definition You take art, I take spam. To you for your “K” ration: my passion and maybe An inkling, a twinkling or real sympathy I’m selling out - take all I’ve got! Ambitions! Convictions! The works! Why not? Enjoy my goods, for boy my goods Are hot!

very rarely does modern celebrity fashion stop me in my tracks ......but i came across these pictures of Lady Gaga at an event this week that blew me away ......she reminds me of boudoir and pin cushion dolls from the early 1900's...

this is the doll on my shelf that i thought she really embodied

here are some other dolls she reminded me of

p.s. the images of GaGa were stolen from a google image search....sorry for the lack of photo credit.....

a while back one of my customers bought this piece to wear at her wedding........she came to me with a custom order request for some similar pieces for the other ladies in the ceremony....custom work is usually pretty hard for me since i only use vintage material and don't usually have large quantities...but because she is so sweet, was pretty open to my ideas and gave me quite a few colors to work with i was able to do it!

these are the flowers i decided to work with..

and these are the final five pieces for the bridesmaids....

the bride
the other ladies

i'm hoping she sends some more photos....i'll post them if she does

congrats jessica!
