Favorite Necklace Ever!

Just a little show and new creation. I really love this necklace: the color, the layers, the way it hangs...

Jewelry Show at Roberta's

Roberta and Ro hosted Quirky Works Studio's first ever jewelry show in Cooperstown this week...and it was a big hit!

It was a lovely evening, with food, drink, and bling! Lots of necklaces sold - it was SO much fun to watch the ladies try them on, and find the PERFECT piece for them...several women bought more than one piece, for layering. Everyone looked so beautiful wearing our refashioned vintage pieces!

Huge thanks to Roberta and Ro for the support and encouragement and friendship, thanks to our new patrons, and special sweet thanks to Susan, who baked a gorgeous cake for the occasion!

The Cake! (It was goood!)

Roberta getting ready...color coordinated (of course...she is our visual guru and our muse...)

Shadowbox Jewelry

Excuse our enthusiasm, but we're over the moon about these shadowbox pendants we've been making. Each is a little over an inch square. One-of-a-kind (of course!) little works of art, these wearable assemblages draw a lot of attention. We're quite proud of them.

The two shadowboxes here are already purchased, but we have more, and will post pictures soon. As always, please call Karen at 607-434-3418 if you have any questions about our items.

Quirky Works Studio: Our Jewelry

We've been very busy in the studio recently making (well, fashioning and refashioning) jewelry, and we'd love to share our work with you! We've made some great pieces, like the one above, using bits of this and that, vintage watch faces, rosary beads, stray crystals, all layered together...they are show stoppers! You can wear these one-of-a-kind necklaces with a t-shirt and jeans, or dress them up and wear them out for a fancy evening on the town. (Very versatile!) Don't you love them?

If you're interested in these pieces, we're very low-tech - sorry - so you can call Karen at 607-434-3418. If you happen to be in Cooperstown, NY, stop by the studio to browse! (79 Chestnut Street, but do call first, please!)
We'll be posting more pictures of our creations soon. Thanks for looking!

Vintage Hankie Camis

Our most popular piece of clothing has been the Vintage Hankie Camisole. Our customers across New York State love these sweet camis, each of which is unique, made with actual vintage handkerchiefs and trim.

We're starting to branch out with these camisoles: we've been approaching a few hand-picked shops in the Northeast to carry them for the Spring and Summer of 2010.

Check them out!
Contact us if you know of a shop that might be a good fit for these adorable, one-of-a-kind camis.

Our Fall 09 Line

Martha and Karen have been so busy creating and gathering that we haven't had time to blog!
But just check out what we've got in store for the Fall season...
Our Fall line, which we'll be debuting in Ithaca on September 26th and 27th during the Apple Harvest Festival, features a lot of altered jackets, sporting some great vintage textiles and old images printed on fabric...check them out:

They are soft, comfy, loaded with lace, easy to wear, and one of a kind. Can't wait to show them off in Ithaca! Please come see us on Saturday or Sunday at the Apple Harvest Festival - we'll be there from 10 am till 7 pm each day.
We are also at the Cooperstown Farmers' Market on the first Saturday of each month from 8 am till 2 pm.
