Rustic Chic

My first post with the Earring Everyday group...
I'm a bit different, but the same in many ways....
I have a huge passion for design in various mediums....
I hope to inspire you with my ideas ~ 

You can find these with all my designs & components on  Etsy  ~ 
I'm forever trying to figure out my design style ~ 

Rustic Chic 
 the slightly comfortable/worn feeling of rustic~ness 
mixed with a chic elegance & a twist of nature. 
My work represents my heart ~ the things and people I love...
I could crawl into any of these pictures and be totally at ease.... 
I need a pair of Old Gringo boots.....they would inspire anyone~

~Love this big rich leather handbag~
In my free time I crochet ~ 

I do my creative thinking in the morning with a cup of tea ~ 
I'm excited to be part of this dynamic team! 
Looking forward to a creative 2012~

  1. I'm excited to see more from you! Love your style even though you haven't found it yet! :)

  2. Melinda I love how you made piece of metal look like worn leather, that is pretty amazing. And those earrings and those boots - match made in heaven!

    I love these earrings! They are so cool and really look like they could be a piece of leather from the boots! Fabulous photos as well! And, I'm sort of glad you haven't found your 'style' yet,...makes me feel like I'm not alone in that category. :)

  4. So happy to have you here on our team! :)
    Love those earrings and paired with those boots = perfection!

  5. Love the earrings! Fantastic as all your pieces always are!

  6. Just WOW!! The shiny rivet-like elements on what looks like divinely rusted metal are FABULOUS. I love the time-worn look of the pattern on there. The colors on those shields have me swooning! The leather is a perfect touch, as are the vibrant little orange beads. Really stunning.

  7. These earrings are great Melinda! The design is very earthy and rustic looking. I admire all of your work and love your wide range of styles. You are always challenging yourself by trying new designs. I think your style is eclectic.

  8. beautiful earrings!! and those boots are to die for! i crochet as well!

  9. Whatever your "style", it's definitely working for you! Love all of your pieces! The look and texture of the earrings reminds me of the tooling on a saddle I used to have! You achieved the perfect color, too. Enjoyed the little extras to go along with the earrings. No one would guess that I just lived in my cowboy boots for years! These are awesome!

  10. I love these earrings! They are perfect for those boots - I would love any pair of those :)

  11. So gorgeous! And welcome aboard!
    Enjoy the day.

  12. Fantastic!!! I would totally wear these :)
