I saw some cool jewelry in here that used vintage images so I tried out some of my own.  I searched the net for 50's ads and pin-ups and found some great stuff, these are my first three pairs:



I also found an old ad with the Flinstones hawking Winston cigarettes, that is DEFINETLY being made into a pair of earrings!

They are gorgeous!
Please could you tell us where the pics are from? Also did you just print them out with a regular printer?

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

Thanks!  Links to the pics are:

The link for the spacegirl I can't find as my lap-top crashed last weekend (Boo!)  But I found the picture on a site about retro 50's advertisements.


They're printed out on regular paper and I used 2 types of sealer on them: The first was called "Workable Fixative" and it is specifically for protecting computer prints, chalk, pencil and charcoal drawings from smudging and wrinkling.  the second was a regular Acrylic protective finish  (I used a matte one because I prefer it over glossy)
