When I was 17, seeing the movie Romeo + Juliet was a huge awakening for me. I had never seen anything like it, so colorful and pretty and bizarre. I was so inspired by it. I still love that movie and Baz Luhrman’s crazy style. Tonight I was sitting at my desk, listening to the rain and wind outside, and I started thinking about the rainy nights back home in New Jersey, being stuck inside and chilly, with nothing to do but wear out another copy of Romeo + Juliet in my bedroom. So, thinking of the imagery in that movie, I made these pendants tonight out of shrinky dinks, and did some fun hand-beaded flower garlands on them. I guess I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to sew or make jewelry, so I split the difference. I’m happy with how they turned out!
I added these to the shop tonight, and now I am off to google old pictures of Dicaprio, and wish he had aged better. Ha!
