Junk to Jewelry

It's been a while since I posted about my junk to jewelry creations, but I've been working away on something pretty much on a daily basis.  With several shows lined up over the next couple of months, this one woman factory has no time for slacking.  These are some pieces I've been working on.....

More keyhole, watch face, and charm necklaces.

I was so excited to find several more of these keyhole plates made out of wood on my last shopping trip to the Alameda Point Antiques Faire.  I've been decorating the zinc hearts I bought in Sonora with vintage bits and pieces. 

I'm still working on earrings from the pile of vintage watch faces I found in Alameda.

 I always like finding matching watch faces, but as long as the size and shape is similar, that works for me.

A single vintage clip on earring is now the focal point of this asymmetrical necklace.
How would you hear with that big earring attached to your ear?

I thought I could get more mileage out of the other earring by taking it apart one little flower at a time.

Nineteen flowers = nine pairs of earrings with one flower to spare.  I'm still working on the rest of them. The earrings on the left are made with antiqued brass filigrees, salvaged rhinestones, and vintage metal shoe buttons.
