Countdown to Columbus

Oh, the excitement. The panic. The exhilaration. The sheer JOY of being a vendor at the Country Living Fair! With only a few short weeks to go, the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio is sure to be the highlight of the year.

bel monili by l.marlane is absolutely thrilled to be a vendor at this prestigious show for the first time! I am working hard to craft, create, and prepare for my visits to Columbus and Atlanta.

So, since bel monili is brand new to the Country Living scene, I thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself and show you a little bit of what I do!

My name is Lucy, and I am the brains (ha!) behind bel monili by l.marlane. By trade, I am a speech-language pathologist at a suburban elementary school. By rite of passage, I am an artist. My real love is creating unique, one of a kind pieces using vintage components.

My home is small, but my passion for creating is huge. I love finding the perfect vintage piece and transforming it into something "new" to be loved. Here's a little peek at some of my favorite things:

vintage earrings...one of my favorites
 I hand-craft jewelry and accessories using vintage materials, fun finds, and previously loved pieces.
some pretty display items...
 My display is a mash of function and beauty, vintage and re-purposed.
feathers, seashells, and industrial bits and goodies

bel monili signature flower pins and hairclips
 My flower pins are definitely one of the main attractions; they were included in the giveaway bags for the 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards!
meet Francine!
 Despite my small space, I like to keep inspiration and beauty in plain sight.
