i’ve been playing with some junque jewelry that i bought a few days ago – a HUGE stash of vintage rhinestone jewelry…
i LOVE pawing through junque jewelry, you’ll never know what treasures you might find! and i found PLENTY of great bits and pieces! here are some of the jewelry pieces i made this weekend…
i used a vintage sterling silver charm bracelet as a base, then made “charms” using broken bits off of earrings, pins and more.
this piece started with a bracelet that my mom bought me in canton. i decided to bling it up by adding some charms to it. this bracelet is SO me — i hate to wear a watch and this one has FIVE of them — but NONE keep time! LOL!
for this necklace, i used a rhinestone button as the centerpiece, then hung a broken link from a bracelet from it. the chain features some crystal beads from a necklace and two links from an old bracelet with pearls wired in. links taken from several necklaces create the chain.
this one started with an old skirt pin; i strung together different bits and pieces along with a few onsie earrings.
i figured i better stop playing before i used up all the junque i bought! i had thought to incorporate them into some class projects!
i’ve also been on a buying spree to find some great bits and pieces for the Secret Garden altered book! here’s a few of my purchases, i don’t know yet if they will all end up in the book or not…
i’m not done shopping or planning yet! i can’t wait to get my hands on the G45 Secret Garden papers so i can start working on the book!
