Hello my beautiful jewelry lovers! I am here again to chat with you, about all things jewelry. This time we are going to chat about my inspiration for the camouflage designs in the Soul Sisters Jewelry line.
We all have special connections and memories of someone in our lives. Unfortunately we don’t have control over the amount of time we have with them in this world. There are some really creative ways to preserve the memories you have of those loved ones. I am privileged to have and know more than half a dozen soldiers in my immediate and extended family, and many more generations tracing back to the revolutionary war. As a designer I count it a true pleasure to create something beautiful from upcycled military uniforms.
The very first jewelry design made from a military uniform was patterned after some of the denim designs. My Mom gave me my brother’s Marine fatigues, and looking at the material I thought; ‘I can use this to create jewelry pieces as tribute to soldiers!’ People will be able to pay tribute to love ones and be stylish as well. Once I got the beads created, the designs just fell into place as I created new pieces. The camo designs can be made into most any style. My favorite camo designs are the larger chunky bling designs! I have paired them with various pearls and rhinestone beads to create pieces that can be worn casually to work; or shopping with the Girls on the weekend, and then dress them up with a quick outfit change and you are off to dinner and dancing downtown!
I have even created camo designs in color variations from the traditional green, brown, black combo, to shades of pink, and others in shades of blue. I welcome your special requests for custom designs that will be a beautiful tribute to a loved one. Donations of camouflage and denim material, in any color, are welcome to upcycle into beautiful designs.
