Vintage inspired Brass Locket Necklaces

I love lockets and fell in love with these old lockets (but never used). They have a wonderful patina. I paired them with pearls, antique crystals, Lucite flowers, charms and many other things!

Vintage Inspired Jewelry

In the last year I have discovered Lucite flowers and brass. I love how when layered you can create vintage style jewelry.

They are simple, but elegant.

Changeable Bands for watch

Fun, Chunky, Trendy, Fashion watch bands are the perfect accessory to any girl's wardrobe. On each end of the band are two large (16mm) lobster clasp to clip on a watch face (sold separately).

I used a very durable, stretchy cord for ease of wear, proper fit and comfort. Each knot is glue inside a bead to prevent the knot coming undone or showing the unsightly ends. I use many kinds of beads, however most will be acrylic due to their light weight.

These are now listed in my Etsy shop!

Bands: $13 (can vary in price)
Faces: $10 (can vary in price)

In December I started to make these watches as per a friends request. I found that I quite liked making them and made myself and daughter a set as well.

Since they are popular item in many boutiques, it was hard to find a spot to sell them other then my etsy shop. However I finally succeeded in finding a local boutique to sell them in!

They will be sold at Inspired 8621 South Highland Drive 2000 East
You can contact me and I can make a custom watch.

Reds, pinks, greens.....blossoms, stripes, dots.....All of this screams SPRING!

Vintage Style Locket (SOLD)

I love using old items to make new jewelry.

I used an old crystal that I was told (by the previous owner) that they were obtained from a old Rhode Island Factory that shut down in the 1950s. The crystals were the "sweep ups". The crystals that had fallen to the floor and had been swept up.

The locket and all the findings are made from brass

Here is just a taste of my Halloween beads. Listing later today will be pairs of ghosts.
The little trio of pumpkins are perfect for a bracelet. (I have made many of these.)
