I love vintage jewelry and have recently repurposed some of the unwearable pieces into fiber art ACEO's that seem to be speaking to me of the 40's, 50's and early 60's movie stars.
The "movie queen" usually is not revealed until I have chosen the colors and the jewelry bit, as well as the embellishments.
"Red Hot Rosalind" was named by my husband, and the red glass beads even look like red hots. I always think of Rosalind Russell in red, white and black, gorgeous and seductive.
"Royally Gold" has that hint of Grace Kelly, regal, subdued, a princess. The piece of jewelry had been in my jewelry box for at least 30 years. There are a few stones missing and the clasp of the bracelet was broken.
"Make Mine Purple" is very Audrey Hepburn-ish, fluffy, retro, yet elegant. Fluffy feathers, mod color combination. I loved "Breakfast at Tiffany's".
I am calling this my "Movie Queen" series. My favorite movie queen was Deborah Kerr in "An Affair to Remember".
Who is your favorite movie queen? Let's see if I can capture yours in an ACEO...I always love a challenge.
