January 14, 2011


Yesterday I was sorting through some bits and pieces of leftover junk I have accumulated and decided to use some of the pieces in a vintage re-designed necklace.
 The center piece is a vintage ?rhinestone ring that came in a bag of jewelry I bought......I was ready to send it back to the thrift store, but wondered how it would look incorporated in to a necklace.
I used the ring as a base to hang all my little trinkets from.  The trinkets are an assortment of vintage earrings, chandelier crystals, beads and rosary crosses. 

 Three layered chains.
I love this combination of pieces of junk!
Happy day!

It was just a natural progression that you become a jewelry maker after all your love of old bling! I do believe it was meant to be girl ~ fabulous job!

Hi Janis, It looks great! I never would have thought to put a ring as a charm keeper, very clever!
