Wow. I've been neglecting Craftster lately...=/
But....I have a TON of pictures of all my new recon'd jewelry, so....without further ado...the stuff!!
First, a vintage reconstructed bracelet: I basically just restored the bracelet and added the cool bow clasp thing:


OK, next: Some reconstructed beaded bracelets: (The smalller one is a kids' bracelet):


Um...next are some memory wire bracelets I made with some more beads mostly from old jewelry pieces, etc.:


And my favorite, the purple and white one, all by itself:


Next, a charm bracelet with just random buttons, charms, etc. on:


Next- Rings!!
All together:


Just the button rings:


The other ones (from left, little shoes, rubber ducky, flower (from an earring) and wings (also from an earring):


AND NOW! My earring board:


And some close-ups:
Earbuds:


Forks:


Black beads and wire:


Orange beads and cowrie shells:


Toothpaste and floss and brown buttons:


Little loops and punctuation:


Peace signs and Leaves:


Peace Signs (again, because they looked kind of strange in the first picture, I think) and garden tools:


Swirly with purple beads (sorry for the crappy quality):


Grapes:


Retro green hoops:


Yay. OK, necklaces (and that's it, I promise Smiley)

First, pie necklace. This is so simple, but I love it because:

pie!!!!

Next, Across the Universe necklace. Not altogether sure if I like it...what do y'all think?


OK next- decoupaged lady necklace:


And...AWESOME junk necklace- with random things- beads, charms, bells, awesome stuff. I ♥ this necklace. Do you?



NEXT-Bottlecap necklace-pretty simple, but I love it:



Punctuation necklace (goes with the earrings):


Glass rings on ribbon necklace:



And Steampunk-y necklace:



Wow. That's it. Thanks for putting up with the crazy long post and all the pictures. PLEASE tell me what you think! I ♥ comments!!!

I LOVE the forks, love the wire wrapped black beads but think the beaded peace signs look a bit strange. The earphone things are an interesting idea- hey maybe my brother can make some out of the 3 pairs or earphones he's broken since the summer- but I don't think they look amazing. Your earrings with the gardening tool beads in are nice but I think the tool beads would look better if they were put with different stuff. No, I dunno what I'm trying to say.  Roll Eyes

Anyway, WOW what a lot of stuff you have. Nice forks.

The earbud earrings were actually pretty easy to make, I just took some broken headphones and cut off the earbuds. Then I took an eye pin and cut it so it was pretty short...then I dipped it in hot glue and stuck it in the little hole at the bottom of the earbud where the wire went...then I put the loop of the eye pin on an earring wire. Does that make any sense? =)
Anyways. Thanks!!
