Junk to Jewelry Creations

Where did the weekend go, is it really Monday already?  The yard sales were holding out on us again this weekend, but that's probably a blessing in disguise because it allowed me to finish up some projects that have been sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks.  It's not like I don't have enough junk to work with, but there's always room for more.  Here's what I've been up to...

Pick a number, almost any number.

I always prefer to work with old components, but these vintage-inspired porcelain number tags were too hard to resist.  The button charms, key, and typewriter key are the real deal.

 I also worked on some of the watch faces found at an antique show a few weeks ago.  You can see the button earrings I made from this haul here.
    
I used some of the old clip-on earrings to decorate the pocket watches, and the door knob cover (escutcheon) found a watch face that's a perfect fit. 

Watch face earrings with little vintage buttons, birds, and rhinestones.
Now I need to give the pile of junk in my garage some attention.
Hope you all have a creative week.

  18. Beautiful, Betsy!!!

    I saw an awesome barn door that I would have loved to have brought home this weekend but Richard said now what in the world would you do with that. He didn't like my answer, put it in the house somewhere LOL

  19. Betsy, I adore your creations and I know just what you mean about preferring the vintage pieces. I am just starting to discover all the stuff the craft store has to offer but can't quite decide if I like the idea of it. Those numbers are neat and when would you ever find something like that?? I say good choice!
