Last Episode of Sex and the City The Carrie Necklace

LOS ANGELES (Associated Press) -- "When Carrie Bradshaw broke her Russian lover's heart and the necklace he'd given her in the "Sex and the City" finale, the jewelry had a stunt double.

The real necklace, consisting of nine diamond beads on a platinum chain and valued at $55,000, remains intact, said New York jeweler Fred Leighton.

A crystal and silver version was used in the scene in which Carrie, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, ends her romance with an artist played by Mikhail Baryshnikov."

Here, my friends is where you will find an exact inspiration of the necklace. Available at www.gurlcouture.com going on sale at 8:00PM CST on 10/21/08.


My version is on a silvertone 18" chain with 9 AB crystals. I will also have my authentic brass "MFIPC" makers mark on the clasp.

Oopsie Doggies are here!

Just designed and created yesterday in my studio are these plush little cuties that I call "Oopsie Doggies". The reason for the name is because during the making of the first one, I kept messing up and say "Oopsie Daisy" but then I started saying "Oopsie Doggie"..lol..

Anyhow, they turned out so darling. They will be coming up available for sale this weekend on ebay and etsy. You can purchase them as car air freshners (some will be scented), Christmas ornaments, and keychain accessories as well as door hangers and sachets.
