The sun came out this afternoon and it reached a beautiful 61 degrees. Wow, a heat wave. Love it! It was warm enough to take some pictures outside without having my fingers turn blue. These are some necklaces I made the other day from my stash of jewels waiting to be repurposed.......
I think this rhinestone piece is half of a sweater guard pin; I used the other half in another necklace project. The chain is from a rosary I found in an antique store a few weeks ago.
This purple rhinestone flower was a clip on earring. The beads and chain were salvaged from other pieces of jewelry.
The tiny purple rhinestones show up a little better in this picture.
This was also a clip on earring. The little rhinestone beads, pearls, and chain are from a few other vintage pieces.
I bought this cute old change purse at an antique show a few months ago; I just knew it had to become a necklace. Bits and pieces of vintage chain, beads, charms, and buttons dress it up a little. It needed something extra on the front, so I added a little brass filigree and part of an old earring.
