Dress Necklaces

Dress Necklaces

These dress neck­laces accented with wire wrapped vin­tage beads are the lat­est designs added to my col­lec­tion of hand­made vin­tage boho chic jew­elry. I think what I love most about my jew­elry line is no two pieces will ever be dupli­cated. They are all one of a kind pieces and I LOVE it. I am always look­ing for items that are unique to wear and this line is perfect. FYI… If you see a heart, dress, cross or rec­tan­gle neck­lace in one pat­tern but wish it was in another pat­tern, please feel free to con­tact me as I might be able to...

One Of A Kind Tin Bracelets

One Of A Kind Tin Bracelets

I’ve really been enjoy­ing the cre­ative process of jew­elry mak­ing. Each piece of jew­elry I cre­ate is one of a kind and has been cre­ated from items I’ve col­lected from all over the coun­try dur­ing my trav­els. Most of the items used are unwanted, bro­ken and rusted trea­sures that I bring to life in a new fash­ion. I’ve lov­ingly taken the time to clean and com­bine these items into some­thing you will want to wear proudly. These bracelets are the newest items listed in my Etsy shop and will make per­fect gifts for any lady in your...

Cross Necklace

Cross Necklace

This sim­ply stated cross is a reminder that we are all slightly flawed yet still beau­ti­ful. I love the red, aqua and yel­low col­ors as they scream RETRO and go with any sum­mer attire. The tin has a few slight scratches here and there but I feel it only adds to the beauty of the cross. I wire wrapped a vin­tage clear iri­des­cent bead that dan­gles from two jump rings. The cross mea­sures approx­i­mately 2.25″ in length and hangs from a 24″ ball chain neck­lace. It is listed in my Etsy Shop. This match­ing bracelet mea­sures...

Tin Necklaces

Tin Necklaces

Not only have I been mak­ing cuff style bracelets but I’ve also been mak­ing some cute sim­ply stated 24″ neck­laces. This neck­lace is what I call a dressed up ver­sion of a dog tag. Since I like my items to have a dis­tressed feel before stamp­ing my word I gave the metal tag sev­eral whacks with my brass ham­mer. Once I the sil­ver metal tag was banged up a bit I metal stamped the word smile onto the sil­ver metal tag using what is now my favorite let­ter stamp set 3mm Newsprint low­er­case by Impres­sArt.  I applied some Mus­tard Seed...

Leather Cuff with Vintage Tin & One Little Word

This week­end, I was busy cre­at­ing one of a kind bracelets. This bracelet is mixed with all sorts of fun stuff. The base of the cuff is leather and is accented with tin that I hand cut from a vin­tage tin. The tin is attached to the leather with crys­tal riv­ets that I LOVE. The riv­ets are by Impres­sArt and I need buck­ets of these in every color. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them so much. Each end of the leather is cov­ered with a strip of vin­tage tin and is also attached with crys­tal rivets. I metal stamped the word True using the let­ter stamp...

Assemblage Makes Me Happy

Assemblage Makes Me Happy

I love tak­ing dis­carded items found in thrift stores or flea mar­kets, putting them together and cre­at­ing some­thing won­der­ful. It gives me absolute pure joy and is just what I did to cre­ate this bracelet. I used opaque white beads from a bro­ken rosary, clear iri­des­cent beads from a bro­ken neck­lace, metal chain, wire wrapped some clear and pearl beads taken from a bro­ken bracelet and cut a piece of tin from a beat up old vin­tage tin. When assem­bled together these dis­carded items cre­ate a beau­ti­ful piece. This bracelet is...

Leather & Vintage Tin Bracelet

Leather  & Vintage Tin Bracelet

It makes this momma so proud when one of my daugh­ters sees a jew­elry project on my work­table, picks it up and says, “I’d wear this, this is cool.” Lately, I’ve been play­ing around with vin­tage tins cut­ting them into sim­ple shapes to cre­ate accents for bracelets and ear­rings. I love old tins and think up-cycling them into jew­elry is fun. The leather lace used on this bracelet is fab­u­lous and is my favorite. It’s 15mm Deer­skin lace and is “SUPER SOFT”. You can find it at Endlessleather.com. The color I used to make this bracelet is...

ThermoMorph ~ Moldable Plastic

I was asked to try Ther­mo­Morph and give an hon­est review on what I thought and how I liked it. Ther­mo­Morph is made from poly­morph gran­ules. I know I was like what the what?
