Vintage Vibe

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!

Purple Butterfly, Oh My!

 

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.
