 For this blog hop I decided to use the necktie form. While my version is a bit tongue in cheek it is never the less a serious attempt at pulling together vintage pieces and style with a creative spirit.  It is titled   "Looking for Love in Cupid's Garden".
The vintage cupid is riveted to the tie form as is the crown mount at the top.
 The neckline is patterned after a squash blossom necklace but made with Czech glass and caged pearls
From top to bottom it is filled with elements similar to the 1960-70 era. Rhinestones both vintage and new provide the sparkle and a doll eye from 1865 tops off this eclectic piece.

  14. You could also call it "Tied up In Cupids Garden"
    Definitely out of the box thinking here. I just can't make up my mind if it's the all seeing eye, or the evil eye. But since you went with Cupid I think I'm going with the All seeing Eye. Very creative, thanks for the smile and the moment of reflection.
