A corsage is defined as a small bouquet that women wear on special occasions: A ball, a wedding and all manner of fancy moments....
What about the excitement of simply rising out of bed to face the wonders and mystery of a brand new day?
How about that moment of recognition when you look in the mirror and realize you trust yourself more than you did yesterday, knowing thyself a little bit more?
Perhaps celebrating the passing of a test, the perfection of a Mozart sonata for piano or giving birth?
Everyday life is filled with fancy moments, too - we just have to claim them as special, or they go by unritualized (thanks, Mom) or uncelebrated.
I began my corsage series with this is mind: a cuff that feels like a big deal that can be worn everyday - I tweaked the design a bit from the prototype I made the other day and came away with a keeper:
Tooled deeply, painted gently in a gorgeous pink, yellow and toffee monochrome rainbow...
Shaped carefully and gently lined in ebony to bring out the colors...
Fastened with a silvertone snap
And likely to cause all manner of not only elegance, but very silly poses and utter happiness.
This first piece fits a six inch wrist and will be in the
Love to you,
