Vintage Treasures Abound... Some jewelry I made with vintage treasures... I love this photo effect!
A closer view of a few of the necklaces.
This is a closeup of the top necklace featured. This necklace took about 3 hours to create from scratch. I created the wire base, used vintage beads and elements, a few new crystals for extra bling.
This necklace is a personal favorite. I created it from a vintage brooch... I twirled, twisted, wrapped and wired until the pendant was a solid, funky chunky new look.

Here is a grouping of a few new peices I made with vintage elements. The white peice is made from cherished treasures... vintage beads that were worn lovingly at one time... the necklace was broken and packaged lovingly in a sweet box. I created the base, and wired the elements endlessly (3 hours) to create this one of a kind necklace.

The second necklace was a vintage brooch that I found. I loved it on it's own, but it needed a bit of a trendy repurposing... so I swirled, twirled, twisted and wired it lovingly into a new look (I must say, one of my favorites!)
