STYLEMAX... Back again!

Back at Chicago's March Stylemax...
A little warmer this go around, still snow but at least there was sun!
Met some really great people... like my awesome neighbor, Katie Lime of Moira K. Lime Jewelry
beautiful jewelry all handmade here in Chicago by a terrific artist/metalsmith!
Had some returning friends, boutiques and stores visit me, connected with new stores and all around had a great time in learning more and more where my customers are and what they love!
I also launched new pieces from my collection for the Stylemax show (never seen by anyone except the boyfriend, the roommate and the Banjo/my handsome little puppy)!
I'll have a posting of all my stores soon, so stay tuned and you just might see Dallas Maynard Jewelry in your favorite boutique!

'Charming The Five' Snake Ring Crafted in Sterling Silver... Inspired by the free flowing beauty of Art Nouveau!

Sterling 'Raw Crystal' Pendant...
I love the unpredictable organic shape of crystal quartz so much that I wanted to incorporate it into the new collection line...
it's said that quartz absorbs your current energy... so wear these darling little pendants when you are feeling wonderful and the cheer will spread... wear them and wonderful things may come your way... wear them for a day and then pass them on to a friend in need of good cheer and jolly spirits!
This charming little Birdie Ring gives me high hopes of an early spring here in Chicago!
Crafted in sterling silver with a round comfort fit hammered band.
I'm pretty much in love with this ring!

While I participated in the Stylemax show, it also gave me a chance to set up a booth of my dreams... small and comfy with soothing beats of Billie Holiday chiming in... handmade collages of loved memories... tiny teacups, buttons, lived in records, love letters, all things old, antique and vintage...



ya see, it's easy...
