little late to the game

I titled this post little late to the game because if I'd had my act together, I could have had these new pieces up and promoted for Valentine's Day. I didn't. Honestly that thought didn't even cross my mind until I was looking through the BBA challenges recently and realized that I'd missed the boat. The good thing about these pieces is that they're versatile enough to carry you through many other holidays and occasions as well.

I sold the original version with this all red color palette nearly a year ago, but it's back now.


Whenever I create a new button charm bracelet, I try to make a pair of matching dangle earrings. I'm determined to keep this earring style in stock in 2013 and am introducing lots of new versions of it.

Both of these new pieces are in the shop. I've created a lot of single color palette button charm bracelets in the past few years and would like to branch out a little more in 2013. Any inspired ideas for color combinations with red? And yes, I've already done turquoise and red.

Keeping with my recent Polyvore kick, I created a couple outfits that I think work well with these new pieces.
