My Valentine Necklace

Late­ly, I’ve been cre­at­ing unique pieces of jew­el­ry in my stu­dio using bits & pieces of vin­tage jew­el­ry I’ve been col­lect­ing. The heart shaped pen­dant in the pho­to above is one I cut from cop­per sheet­ing, sol­dered and accent­ed with a vin­tage post­card image, red rhine­stone trim and Ger­man sil­ver glass glit­ter. The front and back of this pen­dant is cov­ered with a lay­er of clear resin. Then I cre­at­ed the neck­lace from pearl, iri­des­cent pink and red beads.

Coral Bracelet

This bracelet is cre­at­ed from a vin­tage ear­ring that I could not pass up at a flea mar­ket. I LOVE the coral col­or and all the detail. The scal­lop lace around the out­er edge and flower cen­ter is so intri­cate. The ear­ring is attached to a bracelet that has a spring type hinge. This type bracelet makes it super easy to get on and off. The bracelet can be worn alone or you can accent it with a few rhine­stone bracelets. I think the coral col­or with clear rhine­stones makes for a beau­ti­ful com­bi­na­tion.

Game Piece Charm Bracelet

This was a super fun charm bracelet to cre­ate. I attached screw eyes to each of the game pieces to make them into charms. I used lots of dif­fer­ent game pieces… Scrab­ble Tiles, Bin­go Tiles, Monop­oly Hous­es, Chess Pieces and oth­er fun game pieces. I added a strand a pearl bead chain that accents the top of the charm bracelet to spruce it up a bit. So when you find game pieces here and there while junk­ing grab them because soon you will have enough to make your own unique game piece charm bracelet.

Resin Charms

These sweet pen­dants range in size from 16mm to 19mm. I used Jew­el­ry Clay, Clear Resin, Dia­mond Stick­les, words from a vin­tage book from the ear­ly 1920’s and wire wrapped beads to accent the 16mm charms. The images are from vin­tage ephemera. These charms are per­fect to accent a neck­lace or bracelet.

All of these items are avail­able for pur­chase in my Etsy Shop. If you see some­thing you like or would like a per­son­al­ized piece please feel free to con­tact me via email, lisa@lisapace.com.
