Late Summer Blues or Ducky is Rather Sick of Pastels So She Made This, I think.

[Late summer in the fashion world happens in late spring. Weird, right?]
Imagine. You're the middle of this Southern California Desert, in a mission-style mansion home oasis with palm trees for a fence.You're wearing this flowing maxi dress, sheer expect where it's proper to not be, and it whips around you in the hot wind as you wait on your roof top pool. The turquoise waters ripple, and you stand stark against the white clay. In the distance, the desert is more powerful than you'll ever be. The sky is opening up, swirling in the grey-purple, tinged with the brown of the not-so-far off LA fires and making whirlpools, threatening dry lightening, and thunder.
It never rains.
This is what you wore.

    Trumpette is not an exception. New father Jon Stevenson worked in the San Francisco men's fashion business and developed a onesie for his young son Nicky. When Nicky would visit the park, everyone would say, "What a cute little girl." Tired of this mistake, Jon made a silkscreened onesie that read the word "boy." Curious to see if other parents liked his unique onesie, Jon placed a small section of them in his men's clothing line. The positive response was overwhelming! Jon and Nicky soon moved to Sonoma County and Jon focused on reinventing Trumpette by creating innovative baby socks. These socks are not typical "cutesy" socks - instead they combine high-quality materials with hip designs to create the ultimate baby socks. After the success of the Perfect Little Dozen sock line, Jon reinvented Trumpette by focusing all of his talent and expertise in the area of baby apparel, with exquisite packaging and fine attention to detail on their products. Trumpette is about contemporary designs that are innovative, unique, and well-constructed.

    "Isn't this pretty? This is really pretty." — @ducktape
    A February broken china necklace from Studio Eleven 11 is for the girl who likes shopping vintage and antique stores, searching for that diamond in the rough. She enjoys finding that one-of-a-kind piece that is interesting, unique, and others haven't seen or done before. She enjoys being an individual and prides herself on owning items that are uniquely her own and are not made en mass or sold at a chain store. She likes treating herself to pretty things and will splurge every now and then for statement pieces that speak her individuality to the world. My broken china necklaces are those pieces of jewelry that you treasure forever. Truly one of a kind, you won't find these elsewhere. Each piece is hand cut from Spode china and then hand worked into a beautiful pendant. Each cut, sanded edge, hole, and twist of wire is done by hand. And because each pendant is hand done, no two will ever be alike. If you're looking for that special something for yourself or someone else, my broken china necklaces are that special, unique something that will make that unique girl smile. And with an available upgrade to all sterling silver for $15, you can order a piece that will truly be precious and be timeless, a true work of artisan hands. (Convo me to upgrade to sterling silver.) Please note that this item is custom & made-to-order. Please allow 7 days for fabrication and shipping to dispatch. If you need your item sooner, please contact me! ~~DETAILS~~ Month pendant is cut from a Spode ceramic plate. All edges are sanded to be smooth to the touch. Unless otherwise requested, necklace will be on a 18" high-quality silver plated cable chain with hand forged clasp. ~~THIS NECKLACE'S STORY~~ This broken china necklace came from a china calendar plate discovered at a local North Carolina vintage and antique store. Its maker is Spode. The actual collection this broken china necklace came from is called the "Blue Room" collection, from the greater Blue Italian line, and is circa 1996. The Spode company actually has a very long vintage china history. Being founded in 1770 by Josiah Spode in Stoke-on-Trent, England, Spode earned recognition for perfecting under-glaze blue transfer printing. This was during a time when blue and white china was very popular and under incredible demand but with little supply from China. When Spode started producing their own supply of blue and white china, they originally produced the usual Chinese motifs found on imported fine china. But in 1814 they launched Spode's iconic Blue Italian range, which became an immediate success and is still in circulation today. Key markers of the Blue Italian collection are Italian scenes of countryside and Roman ruins, as well as men, women, and children enjoying a perfect Italian day. Another important element is the inclusion of animals, sheep in particular. Blue Italian is also known for its quality craftsmanship, especially when it comes to the incredibly detailed figures on their china. All these elements are present on this broken china necklace, your personal piece of the story, both of Spode and Blue Italian. Re-enter my shop:
