Jewels Galore...

I hope everyone had a happy weekend.  It was homecoming here,
the last one for our family as my youngest is a senior.  We have a whole 
year of "last time" sporting events, concerts, dances and all to go
through and I want to savor everyone of them.

But, I wanted to show you all the new "Jewels" that have gone up in the 
shoppe.  I love this collection because I love fall so much
and I really think that these designs have so much to offer
style wise for this season.  So please take a look:

This necklace and the one following it I designed to give the look of a 
vintage and loved military medal on a sparkling Oo-la-la necklace made of
vintage rhinestone bracelet and necklace links, vintage rosary beads and
lots more.  I just love the way they turned out!

This cuff bracelet is an eye popper!  It is a large vintage rhinestone former brooch
that I mounted to an etched brass cuff.  Love it!

What were former French steel cut buttons are now the center
of these gorgeous deep bronze tone dangle earrings.  I have accented
them with beautiful labradorite droplets and faceted rondelles and
tiny link chain.

This beautiful necklace features a genuine hand carved shell vintage 
pendant that I have hung from a sterling silver art deco vintage 
bracelet and accented with citrine and iolite gemstones and platinum 
and ivory colored glass pearls.

What started with a vintage prayer card image is now a stunning one of a kind 
necklace.  I surrounded the image of Mother and Child with vintage
rhinestones mounted in a setting that was former brooch, accented this 
beautiful pendant with a necklace of iolite gemstones, vintage 
rhinestone bracelet links and vintage clear faceted rosary beads.

I love this bracelet!  It is a vintage French cut steel shoe buckle that
I mounted a small rhinestone jewelry finding to.  I attached platinum
colored glass pearls, two oxidized jewelry connectors with genuine hand
carved shell cameos mounted on, gorgeous tourmaline gemstones and
and oxidized jewelry hook and ring.

This necklace has so much going on for it and is loaded with
stunning accents.  The vintage crown pendant is a former shoe
buckle that now hangs from a vintage silver bracelet link and is
highlighted with tiny iolite faceted rondelles.  The necklace is 
combination of Miriam Haskell dimpled faux pearls, vintage 
rhinestone rondelles, iolite gemstones, vintage rosary beads and a
sterling silver oxidized chain.

And finally these beauties I labeled "date night".  These beautiful vintage
amethyst colored teardrops were once old screw back earrings.  I have
hung them from sterling silver necklace links and finished them off
with oxidized sterling ear wires.  Just oh so pretty!

So there you are.  Did you see anything you like?  They are all
in the shoppe now so do check them out along with lots more.
I have more designs in the works and I will be going to
a colossal flea market at the end of the month to stock up on
new jewelry findings so keep checking back with me!

Thanks everyone.  Have a great week!
