Ice Ice Baby- Vanilla Ice where are you now?

Check out this video of a live performance of Vanilla Ice. Remember him?? 




Here is Jim Carrey's version. Hilarious..



Ok. So you are asking what's the point of this. And how does this relate to jewellery.
Here is a bracelet I recently made. I call it White Ice. Of course right after I named this bracelet this song got stuck in my head.








Dangling from a sterling silver chain are funky lucite beads, sterling plated balls, lucite leaves and crystals.  It's very light weight and looks pretty sweet!!

Ok. Getting back to Vanilla Ice. If you want more info on him here is the link to his Wikipedia page:
  He hasn't disappeared. Sounds like he's keeping busy. Here is an excerpt from his Wiki page:

"On April 10, 2008, Van Winkle was arrested in Palm Beach County on a battery charge for allegedly kicking and hitting his wife.[66] He was released the following day after she declared that her husband had only pushed her. In court, the couple's neighbor, Frank Morales, stated that it was merely a verbal argument.[66] Van Winkle was ordered by a Florida court to stay away from his wife following his arrest, and to communicate with his children only if Morales accompanied him. The judge told Van Winkle that he could only contact his wife via telephone.[66] On April 29, 2008, Van Winkle's lawyers, Bradford Cohen and Joseph LoRusso, were able to get the case dropped after providing the state attorney with evidence that conflicted with what was originally reported.[67]"



"In September 2008, Van Winkle signed a contract with Cleopatra Records, recording the cover album Vanilla Ice Is Back! at the label's request.[68] The album was released on November 4, 2008, and contained covers of songs by Public Enemy, House of Pain, Bob Marley and Cypress Hill. IGN reviewer Spence D. called the album "an embarrassing endeavor that sounds like it should have stayed locked inside Ice's studio (or at the very least leaked on YouTube and passed off as a piss take)."[69]

 "On February 27, 2009, Van Winkle performed as part of a joint performance with MC Hammer in Orem, Utah.[70] In August 2009, Van Winkle announced on his official Twitter account that he had signed a contract with StandBy Records, who will release his sixth studio album.[71] Van Winkle is also filming a reality television series.[3]"

What's a piss take?? !! Is that like a mistake??   So there you have it. All you ever wanted to know, or not know about Vanilla Ice.

Hope you like the bracelet!!! :)
