I'm getting lots of jewelry mailed out for the holidays but I managed to put up this new citrine and amethyst ladder necklace in my shop today.
I'm busy keeping up with orders for my personalized birthstone necklace. Glad I stocked up on pretty stones from around the world.
I got some beautiful new gemstones at The Toronto Gem Show yesterday for my personalized birthstone cages. Hello my pretties!

About

Every piece should tell a story....

I do love a good story and books have been an inspiration all my life. With this vision in mind I started What A Novel Idea with jewelry made of altered books. It's hard to cut up a copy of Wuthering Heights or Pride and Prejudice but these books were taken off of dusty shelves, recycled and given new life!

I still create altered book jewelry but discovered the art of using images on acrylic plastic. I adore vintage designs and that gave me the motivation to start creating necklaces and brooches made from retro circus posters. This medium allows me to be very creative and I've had such a good time researching and manipulating these images into unique pieces. I attempt to allow each design to tell its own story whether it's the tale of two trusting acrobats swinging high above an amazed crowd or a hungry cat trying to figure out how it will catch its next meal.

Most recently I fell in love with raw gemstones from around the world. I've incorporated these stones in my vintage and personally designed cage necklaces. It's great combining different birthstones for customers to represent family and friends. I've even made one personalized necklace that represented a litter of puppies! Lots of ideas and lots of stories to discover!

What A Novel Idea was created about five years ago and I feel like I learn something new every day. I plan on creating wearable, interesting stories for many years to come.
