pinterest, the meyer brothers and me

doug and gene meyer rugs. seriously. I've been following these guys on pinterest and in addition to their accessories, furniture and clothing, they pin fabulous vintage photos of models, designers & fashion - colorful and glamorous shots from the 60's through 90's. (PS - the little sliver of icing on this? they followed me back!)

I spotted these rugs in my pinterest feed and my wheels started turning. then I met with my friend claire last week and she showed me how to string my *brimfield beads. the rest is history. literally because I painted these beauties on saturday and my aunt came to town on sunday and promptly bought the necklace. fortunately for you all, I took pictures. rest assured I'll be making more variations of my 'doug and gene meyer' bib necklaces and you'll be the first to know.

* I've always painted those traditional round beads but I picked up these flat discs last fall on my first brimfield show outing. I've got a limited number of those 20mm discs but found a few places to get 30mm discs on etsy
