I bought these old door backplates a while back not sure of the end result, but they turned out to be perfect as necklaces! I love incorporating old chippy pieces that I find with lacy lucite flowers you see here. Very feminine, yet junkmarket style - for sure!

Cassie is sassy good when it comes to her trade. She is an amazing reclaimed jeweler and I'm sure you will all agree her stuff is awesome! The apple does not fall far from the tree... Colleen Rausch of Stones Throw is her Mom...another very talented junk artisan. I love these stories! Please give Cassie a JMS style welcome and visit her JMS profile to learn more about her. Welcome, Cassie... we're all glad you're here! Can't wait to see more. Take Care, Sue Posted: 2:27 pm on November 19th
