Sarongs in the NATALIE O. COLLECTION

Jan 21 2014

One of the items in the Natalie O. Collection is a collection of sarongs (NO TWO ARE ALIKE). These are 100% silk which are designed and hand dyed thru a simple but complex process by my Granddaughter (Natalie-Olivia) and myself. We had introduced them at the African American Heritage Festival 2013 and again at the Annual Fund Raiser sponsored by the Zeta Nu Omega Chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority in Sept. 2013 and after the line simply ran out the door. Unfortunately, I became ill shortly after we did these and have not made up a new batch. (By the way _ I would like to THANK BOTH ORGANIZATIONS PROFUSELY FOR THEIR PATRONAGE). We will be introducing a new batch after

the SITEWIDE DISCOUNT SALE - THAT RUNS TILL THE END OF JANUARY 2014.

THANK YOU to all that came by at the Kensico Dam

Jul 06 2010
It was a beautiful day at Kensico Dam  for the  African American Heritage festival. Melba Moore  was in top voice and everyone was smiling and shouting at her fabulous rendition of her popular song "Lean On Me". I have been a fan of hers every since "Purlie"  ( the broadway musical -for those of you old enough to remember - which also co- starred  - Sherman Helmsley  [pre- The Jeffersons] and either Cleavon Little or Clifton Davis - I forget which). Other fabulous groups were there (which I could  hear) but I was only able to break away from my booth to just see her. And I THANK YOU ALL  for that. Whether you came by to look or to purchase it was lovely to see you and get feedback on my jewelry.

Thanks for Joining me @ The Slater Center

Dec 21 2009

A big THANK YOU to all of you that joined me at The Thomas H. Slater Center on December  12, 2009. The general turnout was on the low side but i was fortunate to have an abundance of visitors to my booth.  The different vendors that were there had some beautiful quality items and many of us wound up patronizing each other.  These events are beautiful in the fact that one does get to meet so many talented people.

There are days, such as that one, when a customer tries on a peice of jewelry, and you realized that you designed it just for her, even if you've never met her before. So was the purchaser of the Agate Majesty Necklace (which made it's debut at the show as well as a number of peices from my  Channelling HOT Coco Collection ). When she put it on, it had her name on it.

I also had the feeling about the Carnelian Mardi Gras peice that was also purchased at the show. The purchaser bought it to give as a gift, but when she tried it on -- it shouted her name.  I  will be curious to know if the "giftee" actually receives it.  

Hope all of you have a blessed holiday  and and abundance in every catagory of your lives for the New Year!

So in celebration of times past and my memories of the Strawberry Festival all items are on sale at a 15 % discount - including my newest peices; Confetti, Study in Green, the Carnelian Mardi Gras collection AND EVEN THE WINE GLASS CHARMS- until the end of June.

WINE GLASS CHARMS

Jun 08 2009

HI ALL OF YOU PATIENT ONES-

I finally got the pics out of the camera and on my website. One of my latest items "Wine Glass Charms" are here. If you have ever put your glass down at a party and don't remember which drink was yours, you will surely appreciate  these. They are made up of the same semi precious stones that I use for my jewelry. The charms fit neatly around the bottom of your wine glass and each set will contain 4 different charms. If you are ordering multiple sets at the same time I will make sure that there are no duplicates in the offering. Since I don't know what stones I will be using ahead of time, you will just have to trust my judgment--don't worry they will be tasteful. Add to your Diva-ness. PLUS  they are at a good price.  Go to the Misc. catagory on the Gallery lineup on the main page. Enjoy!

NEW IDEAS WITH NEW CREATIONS

May 05 2009

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

 I was doing inventory on my supply of stones to create some new peices to feature in the Open Studio event, at the Westchester Arts Building ,where I have my studio.  In the course of doing that, I found I had many small piles of small stones, usually used for filler on some of the more intricate peices.   As I was collecting them and trying to put them in some orderly fashion I began to save them on random peices of wire.  It suddenly dawned on me that these might make some interesting "Wine Glass Charms". Great little trinkets that help you keep track of your OWN wine glass at a gathering. So that is my new 'current offering' item.  And also found that I am a Carnelian fiend, with so many variations on that stone, that I had to do something special with the hugh quantity.  That culminated into the creation of 'Carnelian Mardi Gras' - hope you like this new peice, which will be unveiled at the 'Open Studios- Arts Bash on May 15-16, 2009 at the Westchester Arts Bldg, 31 Mamaronek Ave. White Plains, NY- then featured on the website.

Welcome to the website of Van g Girl Originals:

Mar 17 2009

My designing started for purely selfish reasons.

Not being able to find the items of jewelry and accessories that I wanted,in my so-called, avant-garde style and a relatively reasonable price point, I started making what I wanted. Is there really a style to what I do? Probably not. I just see stones, beads and any thing else that catches my fancy, add whiff of earthyness and see what becomes interesting to me. The mix of the semi- precious stones such as AGATE, JASPER, CORAL , PEARLS, AVENTURINE, JADE, TURQUOISE, CARNELIAN, ART GLASS  with, STERLING SILVER, CROCHETED WIRE , GOLD FILLED AND VERMIELED  findings, and even such items as RESIN  and MYHRR just seem to take the interst to a different level.  Apparently, the interesting part also appeals to others as I often found myself selling my designs off of my neck. While I've just have been around for a scant couple of years, the collections seem to appeal to "Every Woman With a Little Diva in Her!" ..... Is that you?
