Sometimes I like to brag about my friends....July 15th, 2012 in projects
I have had the honor and the pleasure of working with Annie of Grace and Corazon for the past couple of years and what a treat that has been for me! I was first drawn to Annie by her amazing line of sacred, unique, and beautiful jewlery...a handcrafted collection of necklaces, bracelets, rings , and earrings with a European, religious flair. In addition she presented a more rough and tumble leather line of cuffs and pigtail binders. I'm an almost 54 year old who is some what of a pigtail pixie....so, in other words she had me at the pigtail binders. Ah,hahaha! Seriously, Annies original combination of chunky leather with romantic metal work is one of the things that makes her stand out in a crowd.
Annie's amazing talent and her beautiful jewelry are what drew me to her, but her gentle spirit and kind soul are what made me a fan. Many of you who know me know that I am a believer in this hard to come by combination. Talent without heart, passion, and soulful kindness is just talent.....nothing more. Annie is the full package. I've observed this young lady in action and she sure knows how to spread the love. She is kind, supportive, caring, and willing to share herself and her talent with all those around her....a quality that I truly admire and respect in Miss Annie!
What's new with Annie? Well, being the great artist she is...she's adding some inspired new items to her Grace and Corazon collection. Take a look at boots that are made for walking fresh from Annie! Are they fabulous or what! Her new line of vintage redesigned cowboy boots come complete with all the Grace and Corazon bells and whistles. I understand that she will also be adding some jazzed up wearables for below the waist....but we'll all have to wait a while longer for that unveiling! Lastly, on the horizon of what's new, Annie will be joining me and a handful of other extremely talented creatives in a new frontier adventure. Another announcement you will just have to wait for...sorry!
Please get to know Annie by hopping on her Etsy and Facebook pages. I am sure that you will enjoy her and what she creates as much as I do. One of my favorite movies is August in New York with Winona Ryder and Richard Geer...a love story with a bittersweet ending. In the movie Winona's character was described very appropriately as a "unique". She looked for and found beauty and meaning in everyone and every thing around her. Annie de Jongh is a "unique"....one the highest compliments I could ever dish out. Thanks for being you, Annie and I look forward to many more adventures together!
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
