Iridescent Beauty from AW Designs UK

Angela, of AW Designs UK, is the creator of these fabulous fused dichroic glass jewelry pieces. Her jewelry shimmers and shines and will look splendid on anyone.

Just take a look at this gorgeous dichroic glass and sterling silver wire pendant and tell me you don't want it!

Or if jewelry isn't your thing but you are in love with the look of Angela's work take a look at this set of glass buttons. Can't you just imagine them on your next sewing creation? Or simply to dress up that boring button down shirt.

This pendant is more simple than many of AW Designs UK's other pieces and yet it is still stunning. And it can also be worn as a brooch!

AW Designs UK
also offers gift certificates in various denominations!

Maisy Brown - A Study In Gorgeous!

I absolutely love this dress! And who can blame me? I mean really, who wouldn't love to wear a dress made of gold?

The skirt fabric is 85% metal yarn and 15% silk. Combine this with the electric blue metallic sheen organza self-lined bodice and anyone would feel luxurious wearing it. Hurry and grab this dress because there is only one like it!

Another gorgeous creation from Maisy Brown is this beautiful yet simple Natural Linen Tunic Tent Dress. It features 1960s doilies for pockets and a very old hand-crochet doily bib-ruffle at the neckline. Simply sweet!

And no feature on Maisy Brown would be complete without her fabulous Burlesque Hobble Skirt with Fishtail. This skirt is custom made and the best part is that plus sizes are welcome.

To see these three stunning creations from Maisy Brown and many more please visit her Etsy shop at MaisyBrownReproRetro today!
