Just for Prom

     There are very few females in my family and there's nothing I enjoy more than giving jewelry to family and friends. 
     My boys are very sweet in their encouragement of my hobby. They generously nod and smile as I try to explain the interplay of colors or what went into a design. Even though they wouldn't admit it, I sense the "I have no idea what you are talking about" look during these exchanges. I guess it's probably the same look they get from me when they try to explain the ins and outs of Super Mario Brothers.
     So, you can imagine how excited I get when someone in my family asks me to make something for them. It this time, it wasn't just for any occasion. It was for prom. 
     My niece had just bought her dress and was headed home so she brought it by. Remember, I have boys in my home. Their idea of fashion is having two pairs of jeans with which they can rotate every few days. What my niece brought over was a beautiful, pink confection very reminiscent of Cinderella's ball gown.  It had a vintage feel to it so she needed something that seemed "old", but youthful at the same time.    
     The pink of the dress was a warm tone, not baby pink. So I used Swarovski crystals in Greige and Vintage Rose. Matte Silver Toho Treasures, silver Czech glass and just a hint of grey/blue seed beads to help balance the stong pink of the dress.

     I wish I had a picture of her in her prom dress. I know she looked beautiful. How fun it was to be a part of such a special night!.
