A Sneak Peak-Photographs of The Divine Jewelry of Edera Jewelry


It sure has been a long time since I have posted in my poor little blog.  Finally, I have a few recent Self Portrait Photographs.  I have had the recent opportunity to shoot photographs wearing the sublime Fine Jewelry by Ivy Long of Edera Jewelry. Ivy creates her all her jewelry by hand and from real gold and silver lace that she makes herself.  I am amazed by anyone who keeps the old world arts alive such as making lace.  Each piece she makes is one of a kind with a theme and special name that reflects this theme.  Her pieces also feature semi precious gemstones. 
You will be amazed and taken back to another era when women chose to wear beautiful jewelry that would last a lifetime and then be passed on to the next generations.   Buy a heirloom piece for your wedding or a special piece that you will treasure.  You will be will be investing in a tradition of past times.  Thank you for bringing these traditions back Ivy!  Here are a few photographs I took of myself wearing her "Sidonia"earrings.  I have to admit that wearing them made me feel like a I was royalty.  I stood up a little straighter and held my head a little higher.  Please visit her blog and her Etsy shop through the link above.

Thanks so much Ivy-I have been neglected my blog! I do so much of this in my head-chatting away with myself I suppose! Making a new effort(again) to get my ideas out here. And, of course, your jewelry was so special and needs to be shared-what an honour to wear such divine pieces! OOH-Can't wait to see what you have done in your blog-you are a fantastic visual and written story teller-much love and thanks to you!
