AlterDesigns (http://www.etsy.com/shop/alterdesigns) took up the new year’s team challenge by deciding to organize her craft work space. Wow! Wouldn’t you love to work in a room surrounded by such beautiful jewelry?
Here is Gretchen’s revamped space
It was so difficult to decide which items to feature from AlterDesigns, because every one is so wonderfully rich and beautiful. I particularly love Gretchen’s belt buckles.
This one-of-a-kind sterling silver belt buckle is crafted with four tear shaped black chalcedony stones as the centerpiece, surrounded by pink zircon and freshwater pearls. Oxidized silver background makes the stones pop. It is designed to accommodate a removable belt strap.
I think this is my favourite - a beautiful Victorian steampunk handcrafted cameo belt buckle lovingly created with pink suede, filigree, Swarovski crystal and a lovely porcelain cameo with a vintage transfer of a flower. It’s stunning both with jeans or dressed up.
This cuff is also almost impossible to resist. Hot off the runway, this aged brass cuff with Swarovski crystal centerpiece was modeled by America's Next Top Model, Whitney Thompson. The cuff is two inches wide, with shimmering pink crystal and pink aurora borealis. The centerpiece measures 1.75 inches.
