What’s Old is New Again

I always strive to recycle and upcycle in my jewelry creations and that's why I loved this ArtBeads blogging challenge! For this theme I turned to the past and incorporated vintage brooches into my designs and combined them with modern elements, such as silver and gold plated chain and swarovski crystals. I had so much fun making these necklaces....now I just need somewhere to go so I can wear them!

Make sure to swing by Artbeads and check out their great selection of beads, chain and other jewelry making supplies.


I love this beautiful pin. The colors are so elegant and I feel like you can wear it with a formal dress or on a casual Sunday.

I love this chain. Delicate, modern and unique.

I have a gorgeous chocolate dress that would look amazing with this statement necklace. I have no where to go, but I may just put it on and lounge around the house.
