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.
