So I have definitely been off doing other things and neglecting this blog and my jewelry. But recently I went to the huge flea market here at the fairgrounds and bought a few goodies that definitely got me back in the creative groove.
I got these great chandelier crystals. They're about an inch or more in diameter; so they're a great size. And I got them for a great price which I love.
I've had this half of a vintage belt buckle for a while. But I never had anything I wanted to pair it with...until I got the new crystals.
I really liked how they looked together. I added some of my handmade beads created from vintage book pages. I have a thing for typography.
Here's a closer look at one of the upcycled book page beads.
Finally I threw in recycled chain and beads from a mid-century necklace.
I think I'l call it the sailor and the lady. It reminds me of a ballroom in the first half of the twentieth century. With crystals chandeliers, sailors in uniforms, men in tuxedos, sparkling jewelry, and beautiful women with long gowns swinging.
Thanks for visiting!
