I am fortunate in many ways, including having friends who are incredibly talented creators and who share review items. I am especially thankful that they are patient with me…as oftentimes I’m not able to showcase their items until months later. But even months later, their creations look as amazing as they first did.
That’s certainly true of the work produced by Eclectica creator Tiffy Vella, jewelry designer extraordinaire. Tiffy is also a long-time friend from way back in the days of Shenlei Flasheart’s Shengri La Vintage Marketplace…that’s 3-4 years running now! Even after all this time, she graciously continues to share her creations with me. Each time she does, I’m delighted and honored to feature her work. Her design sensibilities and craftsmanship rock.
Take a look. Here are two of the latest in a series of items Tiffy shared: “Cluster” jewellery ensemble (necklace, earrings, ring), and; the gorgeously gem-encrusted “50’s” eyeglasses.
If the devil is in the details, Tiffy is not afraid to go to the smallest level of detail and deliver the most heavenly of creations. “Cluster” is an incredibly versatile wardrober, jammed packed with a burgeoning array of gemstones that is loaded for bare. And what’s more the entire ensemble is loaded with a burst of color-changing options. Click on the earrings, necklace, or ring and change the colors of the gems, the metal, and the necklace ribbon to suit your fancy. For this post, I chose to match the gemstones and metals throughout each piece (although I could have made the colors different in each of the pieces). I made the gemstones a combination of pale green and light purple, the metal black, and the necklace ribbon white to match this great little dress from Azul. This is a jewelry wardrober that fascinates. The more I play with the options in “Cluster” and examine the full dimensions of the gems in particular, the more I appreciate how really superb Tiffy’s work is.
That type of reaction also occurs with Tiffy’s “50’s” glasses, which she’s updated with even more color and texture options. Not only can you change the tint, opacity, and texture of the lens, but you can also change the color and textures of the metal scrollwork and the pearls.
In this case, I changed the color of the Clusters necklace to black and the metal to silver in order to compliment the frame of the “50’s” glasses. And I changed the scrollwork and pearls in the glasses to greens and purples to echo the hues in the jewelery ensemble. It all works so beautifully together and provides a lovely finishing touch to a gorgeous gown that is the latest group gift from PurpleMoon.
These creations truly are quite dreamy. If you want to make them a reality — and who wouldn’t — catch a slurl-flight-of-fancy below and bring these beautiful creations into your life.
