What I've Made In Between Hockey Games...

Bon Jour everyone!!  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.  Mine was
wonderful spending it with family and friends at my son's hockey games.
Even though I spend a lot of time in freezing cold hockey rinks I don't mind
because I love to watch him play.  He graduates this year so we will not see
him play hockey at this level anymore.  It will be very, very hard.

But I have some new pieces in the shoppe to show you.
Everything was designed with Valentine's Day in mind.

I wanted to make this a Valentine piece but not with the traditional colors of
Valentine's Day.  I accented the small brass locket with an old ivory cabochon 
flower.  Inside the locket I place purple felt and a small clipping with the
word "cherish".  The heart hangs from a very old Austrian made crystal former pin.
The necklace has soft green fluorite, genuine amethyst beads along with tiny old
brass style buttons, rhinestones and small faux pearl strands from an old bracelet.

I love this sterling silver former lapel pin in the shape of a heart
with the initials M B engraved on it.  The necklace has lots of 
gemstones and rhinestone pieces.

I mounted this oxidized "Amour" pendant piece and surrounded it with
vintage rhinestone links form an old necklace and then hung from a 
sterling spun silver bow that once was a brooch.  Two sparkling pale 
pink rose quartz gemstones were added.  Very simple, feminine and 

Here a sterling silver cherub bust hangs from a necklace of gemstones,
rosary beads and other findings.  I have handmade a tiny heart pendant
from a small vintage crystal set former pin.  Inside is a piece from an old
french postcard.  The handwritten note shows the date as Sept. 1930.

Perfect little genuine carved shell cameo buttons now adorn these 
sweet earrings that hang from sterling silver oxidized ear wires.
Pear shaped citrine briolettes dangle from below.

Love these!  They are old filigree earring findings that were once screw
back earrings.  I have adorned them with tiny faceted pink tourmaline
and citrine briolettes.  Very Downton Abby!!

This bracelet is a charmer!  I began with an old amethyst glass set pin.
I have attached aquamarine and citrine gemstones and small brass
jewelry findings from vintage pieces.  A brass oval link chain finishes the piece.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing this part of my Valentine's Day Collection
There is more to see in the shoppe.

Thank you for visiting!  Do let me know you stopped by
and I will be sure and return the favor!!
