ADKOF Celebration - Trunk Show Highlights!

Hola, ADKOF fans!

Nicole here. It's a little bit later than I planned (okay, okay... A LOT later), but I wanted to let all of our online friends know about the marvelous time had at our most recent A Different Kind of Flair Trunk Show!

If you didn't know, we recently launched our very own website - www.adifferentkindofflair.com - and boy are we stoked about it! The site itself is a ton of work (which Rachel most graciously takes upon herself) and this whole thing is still completely new to us, but we're always a work in progress no matter how smoothly things are rolling. Take a few minutes to hop on over and check it out, and be sure to let us know what you think!

In order to celebrate such a marvelous milestone, we decided to throw a party in our own way - a super duper awesome Trunk Show with lots of gorgeous things to look at and lovely SALES to go with them! SO many of our pieces sold at the show, so be sure to check and see if your favorite is on the website; if not, we'd be happy to do our best to make another similar to it! Check out the highlights below! So many exclamation points!

Emerald IS the color of the year, you know!

Take a basket and get your shop on! :)

The Colors of the Season!

So Pantone does a "review" each season and sort of "predicts" which colors will be hot, hot, hot for the season.  We thought we would share with you their picks and let you be the judge!  And would you believe it...we've already got pieces in our shop in many of the colors!

Of course we LOVE purple!  This shade is so subdued and gorgeous. 

Kind of a cornflower blue mixed with French blue.  Very classy!

This is our personal favorite right now.  We've got 4 new pieces hitting the shop soon in this shade!

For some reason our eye is always drawn to this color.  Maybe because it's so serene?

There is almost always some shade of yellow in the Pantone predictions.  And would you believe it...EVERY time we put a design up in this color it FLIES off the shelf!  So if you see something yellow in our shop that you love, you had better snap it up.  History tells us it won't last long!

This has the wheels in our heads turning.  We've got a HUGE box of beads in all sorts of natural colors.  This linen will definitely make an appearance in our shop soon!

The color of that gorgeous Lapis Lazuli that we love so much!

I would call this peach, but maybe it has more orange in it than peach does.  At any rate, we love this color because it's such a chameleon!

We've got a spectacular piece in this color that we call Satine hitting the shop soon!

Another one of our favorites.  So natural and springy!

So you tell us...which one is your favorite??

So this is Bernice (the oldest of the Womack/ADKOF women – dare I say “matriarch”?) and I thought it was time you heard from me and where I get my inspiration.  I began making jewelry a number of years ago when I came across a box of my grandmother’s costume jewelry. 

Grandma was a flapper in the 1920s and still had quite the “flair” when I was growing up.  She loved jewelry and pretty clothes and dressing up to go to parties.  I like to think I inherited this from her!  It was so much fun for me to go through that box of old jewelry and see what pieces she had chosen over the years – some were very specific colors to go with certain outfits and others could be worn with anything.  I could tell that some of them were her favorites because they were well-worn on the edges and the glass pearls were translucent from the outer color having worn completely off.  Many of her favorites were the very ones I would have chosen.  I took these pieces and restrung and restored them so that I could wear and enjoy them.

  That was my first foray into the wonderful world of beads and crystals and findings! I fell in love!  Then I inherited my Mother’s jewelry box that she had inherited from her mother.  Another stash of jewelry!

  My mother didn’t wear a lot of jewelry, but Nanny loved to wear fine costume jewelry and I remember my Granddaddy telling me how much he loved to buy jewelry for her.  So I began making jewelry that had special meaning for me, using pieces from my mother as well as both grandmothers.  It gave me a sense of self, a feeling of having a little bit of them with me, a passing of the “flair” from one generation to another.  I think this will be my next project:
