Hopscotch Couture

Hopscotch Couture features a huge selection of unique accessories. Amongst all the treasures you will find unique purses, haute couture wedding accessories, and Steampunk designs just to name a few. Marelle, the designer behind these fabulous pieces, has been a professional artist for over 25 years. According to her website, all of the accessories from Marelle's line are made with vintage jewelry, most of which is acquired from senior citizens & disabled people trying to get by at flea markets.

It's evident while browsing her products that she is a talented artist & designer. Each piece is a work of art in itself. The floral crown is a perfect example of this, as is the gorgeous white beaded necklace (pictured above) with feathers & rhinestones. I love one-of-a-kind purses, so I was instantly drawn to the glamorous black mirror purse (pictured at left) & the white and gold box purse.

In addition to being a talented designer, Marelle founded the Hopscotch Hands on Exhibit for the Blind, an art show composed of 3D portraits that allows blind attendees to view celebrity portraits. A portion of all jewelry sales go toward funding the exhibit. If you would like to learn more about Marelle's designs & art exhibits, visit her blog and Facebook page. If you happen to be in the position to treat yourself or a loved one to a bit of haute couture, why not support a hard-working independent artist at the same time?
