Black Gold, coal, pepper, petroleum... vintage dresses... and what candy is to a kid...but obviously not black. 

I really do have to get around to telling you what I'm doing now [refer; this post].  Suffice to say it's kid. candy store. sugar high yi yi!!  BUT... I need to present it all in a proper introduction. 
...but just quickly...I am a 'style guru' for an up and coming accessories label... a label I 'found' ages ago at one of Sydney's coolest markets.  I fell in love with their pieces, wrote about them , recognised and photographed their pieces on others, told everyone to "mark my words, they'll be big" and now... I work for them.  

I will be showcasing some of their pieces soon  but yes... I do get to wear whatever I want, when I want!!  See?  Kid.  Candy store.   The occasional fainting spell when I see a new design.

dress given to me by my mother-in-law, she bought it in the 70s * nude suede wedges * gold chrome sunnies * various bangles, dreamcatcher earrings * vintage metal belt * tri-ring by Duallery.
......I have also 'revived' my personal jewellery range.  I love making things (including mischief, excluding food) and I love jewellery tools and bits and pieces!  The gold tri-ring, that's mine.  My brand is called 'Duallery'.

Congrats! Sounds like a dream job! I love the dress and the jewellery you are wearing here. Earrings are amazing! Do you sell the jewellery you make commercially?

Hola lovelies...

Thank you again for such amazing generous compliments.

@ Sonali - I design and make the pieces hon. I don't make the actual bands and chains, etc of course but I physically create the pieces. Once you know how to link components, it's very easy to create from the design.

@ Veshoevius - hey hon, how are you? You're over my way at the moment but alas still on the opposite side!! [WA]
...I do take orders but it's a hobby at the moment...

@ Tanvi, Polka Princess, Leia, L1L2, Sandhyaa - thanks darlings!

@ Jem - they sure do hon!
