junkinyaya writes: thank you so much ladies for the nice comments! I am glad I found ya'll...I will post more as soon as I have time to take pics. Most of the work I do is for clients...so, sometimes I get in such a hurry to get the pieces into their homes, I forget to take "individual pics". Will try and get better at that! xo...deb Posted: 9:07 pm on November 29th

First, I have a store front here in Houston "Yaya Chique" and I also sell to private collectors and to other boutiques throughout the country, Canada and Europe. You can visit my site at www.yayachique.com

If you click into the cross you should see a "full" pic of it and closer detailing. This site only lets you load a certain size pic....and since this cross is over 3ft tall and 2ft wide---it is a little hard to show all the details. And yes, it is designed with a very wide variety of junke and vintage jewels and of course the antique cruicfix (from South America).

Take care and I look forward to getting to know more about this site and all of its members!

MimiToria writes: First of all a big "welcome" to the site. Great artistic ability with these two project posts. The cross looks very cool, but it is hard to see the detailing. Is it mostly made of varying pcs. of junk? Looks like bottle caps, horse shoe,etc., and is quite a strinking work of art.
Love the boot purse. I have never seen this before, but as one that wears boots and loves them, this is quite the cool design you've created. Wow! Love the extra details of the removable handles that turns into a necklace and the awesome fringe detailing along the bottom. Really do love this.
Thanks so much for sharing your talent on the Junk site.
