Pattern Inspiration à la Marrakesh

May 19th, 2011 comments 4

Today I’m looking for inspiration in photos from a recent visit to Palais Bahia…

A palace in Marrakesh built for concubines…

Filled with color, texture, and pattern…

Tiled floors…

Painted ceilings…

Geometric masterpieces…

Proud Momma

In anticipation of Mother’s Day, I’d like you to meet my amazing daughter!
She’s the creative inspiration behind these fabulous custom silhouette pendants and she’s the best girlfriend and antiquing buddy a Momma could ask for. At thebrocante her eye gravitates to all things small: things she cleverly uses to craft the most incredible jewelry.

This is how she re-purposes antique French drapery rings… necklace, bracelet, christmas ornament…

She’s been featured in numerous publications and boutiques and in case you’re tempted, you can find her through her Etsy shop LuckyMeBeads.
I’m one proud Momma.
