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.)

Pair of beads

To get a good pair of Lampwork beads, involves sometimes several attempts. I have learned if they are simple enough or not too big, that I can make them at the same time. This way I can compare them as I go.

Now for animal pairs, I have to make them generally two different days. This way I can see one to compare size and features with. This is why they cost a little more the regular beads.

Vintage Style Earrings

I just love how these look and how light weight they are for your ears!

They can be dressed up or down.
Made with real brass findings (all the metal parts) and Lucite flowers, gems stone, crystals and what ever else I am in the mood to use! :)
For my Vintage style Lucite earrings I am asking only $10.

Spring is here....... Bunny beads!

Finaly it is getting warm enough to go out to my studio AKA Garage! I have had the glass itch for 2 months now...... It gets really bad when I wake up in the middle of the night with new items for my beads.

Today is to be sunny and 47! I will be heading out as soon as the little one is down for his nap. :)
