Oscar Couples - Trophy Worthy!

The men are rarely a feature in a fashion wrap up of many award shows - but when posing with their significant others they make a statement...

Diane Lane and Josh Brolin

Robin Wright and Sean Penn

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

...and the trophy goes too...The Smiths

Will & Jada Smith (I love the diamond lapel pin on Will)

Oscar's Color Story - Angelina Jolie

I have to admit that when Angelina Jolie stepped onto the Red Carpet an audible gasp left my lips!

Between the simple and sensuous Elie Saab dress in black and the long dark waves of her hair the green took my breathe away!!!!

Angelina Jolie appeared in Lorraine Schwartz Emerald Earring and Ring Set valued at $2.5 million!!!

Two huge drops of emerald (115ctw) in the color of the finest columbian emeralds. The ring (65ct solitaire) was a let down after seeing the earrings but still stunning in it's own right!

I am in the market for some Colombian Emeralds now - the color is a must for my collection!

Etsy Designer on the Red Carpet!!!

People always ask me "How can anyone find MY jewelry when there are sooooo many artisan jewelers on Etsy?"

The answer is - find your NICHE! Create your own niche in the market by using keywords and phrases to create a highly focused internet marketing term or product.

The following info just posted to the Etsy Blogs at: [www_etsy_com]

We have all heard the story of Loki, Mickey Rourke's 18 year old Chihuahua who died just before the Independant Spirit Awards last week.

The Raw Story quotes Mickey as saying he would rather have Loki for another two years than an Oscar!

"The 56-year-old former wildman wore a cream Jean-Paul Gaultier tuxedo and an open-necked shirt that displayed a necklace bearing a photo of his long-time pooch of 18 years, Loki.

"She's the love of my life. She made it until six days ago. She left me at a time where after 18 years she knew I'd be alright," said Rourke, a best actor nominee for his portrayal of a washed-up prizefighter in "The Wrestler."

"It's bittersweet. I said to myself I'd rather have Loki for another two years than an Oscar. And I told her that. But she stayed as long as she could you know," he added." [rawstory_com]

That darling image of Loki around Mickey's neck? It came from the Etsy shop of wickedworld !
Apparently another Etsian reported the loss on one of the Etsy forums - that thought came to fruition in a sweet portrait pendant of Loki!

So - by creating a niche item - nothing else you make has to be memorial jewelry - but that one piece will bring everything you make to the public eye!

Oscar Color Story - White Rules!

Whether in sleek architectural styles...
...or Wedding Cake Topping Princess Gowns...White ruled the Red Carpet!

There was the obligitory Black and for the most part it was done well...

But - for those who dared the trend to Black & White really made the rare bits of color POP!

Good...Bad or just for fun...this was a black & white affair!
