Vintage Creations

I have fallen in love with some vintage trinkets I've found.  I just love creating things that have either a Victorian or romantic feel about them.  I did receive some beautiful items from an estate of a recently deceased lady, Victoria, and have enjoyed thinking of ways to keep her love of pretties alive by reviving them.  This piece is the first of my creations:

Next I felt the need to utilize some gorgeous antiqued gemstones in combination with antiqued brass chain, and of course, I had to include some of my hand painted silk to finished them off as bracelets.
 I loved these clear stones and utilized a pretty peacock colored silk to coordinate with it for a romantic bracelet with chains. 
 This bracelet contains some gorgeous fire opals with pretty pink gemstones with the antiqued brass chain and finished off with the rich burgundy silk bow.

And we all love pretty earrings, so I had to create some simple and elegant earrings utilizing these vintage stones.

I've included just a few of the earrings, but if you want to see more, stop by the Etsy shop.  Remember, these won't be replicated so don't wait too long.

Now I have a great little bag of rhinestone necklaces, brooches, and earrings that I picked up at an antique sale . . . what to design with these???  

Stop back often to see what I come up with for your bling pleasure!
