About Me

My photo
Santa Teresa, New Mexico, United States
I am a stay at home mom-preneur to my little Olivia Mae and we are expecting our next little gal Jan 2015! I am a bonified girly girl, and addicted to crafting. Like many of you, these interesting economic times have forced me to think outside the box about my love affair with shopping, which lead me to making my own accessories. I actually get more compliments on the pieces Ive made then the coveted pieces I have saved up to purchase! So this is my new passion; eye catching recycled vintage, and vintage inspired jewelry pieces at prices we can feel good about.

*Splendid Needs You!

So, i'm putting together a little portfolio of my work and i need you! Since my product line is all about recycling, sustainability, and giving back to the community - I decided that paying someone to model would not be the way to go. I need pics of YOU! If you have a *Splendid piece, please send me a pic of you sporting your bling and as a way of saying thank you - YOU GET A FREE BRACELET OR EARRINGS!!!!!

Here is my first submission from my dear friend Vicki in my blue bird necklace that she got for christmas :)
