here is an example of the old becoming new – I used a vintage clip earring (the gold leaf) – gifted to me by an 84-year old gentleman – it had belonged to his late wife – and I surrounded it with Swarovski crystallized green and gold pearls. Volia – a necklace that blends something old and something new!
Again using the Color Purple Swarovski assortment of pearls, I surrounded a silver butterfly pin with the pearls & purple and silver crystals. The silver collar can be adjusted to fit one’s neck. The earrings and necklace set is $40. It will be available at the Carlyle Wine and Art Festival this weekend, August 18 & 19, in Carlyle Illinois.
One of the Crystal Cluster necklace, earrings, and bracelet sets I made this weekend –
I placed Swarovski crystal element pearls around an antique marquisite pin (bought at the Elsah, Illinois, historical society sale) with a crystal dragonfly and butterfly – the color assortment was named “Under the Tuscan Sun” and includes beautiful autumn shades of warm golds, greens, coppers, and ivory. Necklace, bracelet, & earrings $50 for the set.
This will be one of my crystal clusters available this weekend at the Wine and Art Festival at the Bretz Winery near Carlyle Lake, Illinois:
