Cool texture of a slab of found slate, lovely vintage fine featured cow girl boot, and wonderful vintage stamped tag.
The addition of the palest of blue silk ribbon adds to the overall design of this piece.  Note the gorgeous details in this boot charm...
Love the patina on this vintage stamped tool tag.
#37 stamped element was listed as vintage, but I chose it as the coppertone patina was a perfect addition to accent the tones in the slate in the lower focal piece.
The multi layered piece is ready for the country gal at heart.
This photo gives a great visual of how it would hang on its proud new owners neck.  Yes, this is SOLD.  To see more details there is an entire blog post about this necklace on my blog if youre interested.

A fun piece I redesigned with found elements, vintage patinaed pieces and some chain.  The multi layered piece is a one of a kind design created by me. 

I truly believe in research, rescue, re purpose, redesign and recreating!
