ETSY Treasury- Walking on Sunshine

Mixed Chain Bronze Textile Bracelet

I just counted a total of 26 blocks on my counter. They are going to be so cute. But, I just had to shake off the sawdust for a bit to design this beauty. Made with Dupioni Silk, sweet cotton, and re-imagined beads and chains, this textile bracelet is going to add that pop of color. Look for it in my Etsy shop. XO

The Chica Boutique introduces Belle et Chic

I introduce Belle et Chic to you. I was inspired to create a line that celebrated the style of an era long ago. When a woman's expression was communicated through her distinctive chic style and lady-like essence. These pieces combine the best of old and new. My designs utilize the finest materials from around the globe and vintage fabrics re-imagined to give you a style the world will never forget.

Each of my accessories are one-of-a-kind, as I use a mix of new Dupioni Silks and new and re-imagined chains, jewels and other chic fibers and metals. Each headpiece is backed with my signature apricot/white polka dot felt for added comfort. I have enjoyed dreaming this up for the past few months...and I can't wait to get more out. In addition to creating my own designs, If you have some precious jewelry or fabrics/textiles that need a new purpose, we can work together to design something fantastically beautiful, as well. As always, I am happy to create custom designs for you or someone you love! New designs to follow! :)

Much love...

Ok, ya'll, I just have to be a bit sappy here for a minute. I can't believe I started my little boutique a year ago this month. It's been so fun...a true blessing for my family, as it keeps me happy, fulfilled and sane! I have truly loved working with each of you to create unique pieces for your homes, your friends, your babies, your parties....the list goes on. I appreciate the way my business has unfolded so organically. My boutique has, and continues, to evolve. I get new design concepts in my head and just can't wait to share them with you. I have been busier than ever (still fulfilling ornament orders!) and I just can't seem to stop smiling. You guys are great. ;) ThAnK YoU and much love to all of you!!!!
