Welcome to Lady K's Cyber Studio!
My name is Karen and I love the bling! I love the challenge of working with affordable materials. I especially like repurposing forgotten pieces of costume jewelry and giving them life in a new design. Its just the right thing to do. Here in my cyber studio is where I will share my techniques and creative inspirations with you.

My Brimfield Creative Treasures
There was not a lot of affordable vintage findings but I did find a few things I can work with. I purchased a lot of wonderful old Pakastani Kuchi pendants that I've started to repurpose (see the pendant on the right) by removing the original cloudy rhinestones and replacing with new stones. It takes a lot of soaking in acetone and scraping of old glue with a dental instrument but the end results are terrific.
I also found Art 1200 Dentelles in a few vibrant colors that will fit beautifully in my jewelry designs.
