I made all of these using parts of vintage jewelry and found objects. I hope you guys like them! I think they're cute but have always wondered if I'm blinded to their actual ugliness.

A note: I did this in my bedroom with poor lighting and I was kind of in a hurry. Result? Blurry pictures and hard to see details, I'm sorry.  Sad

This is one of my favorites. I found these heavy green stones at an antique store in Arizona along with the gold balls. I call them dimpled gold balls. I'm pretty proud of the results!


I made this using an old metal heart pendant, silver teardrop hoop, and a small silver feather charm. It's so pretty and delicate.


For the hippie I have hidden inside of me, I constructed this awesome bracelet. It's hard to envision how it would look around your wrist but I'll try my best to explain. It's supposed to wrap around your wrist about three times. One of the "layers" would be that gold chain you see kind of stretching out in front of the leather. Does that make sense?


I am in love with the two doves and heart link. I found the gold chain and charms and wooden beads off a huge and ugly necklace from a vintage store in D.C.


It looks kind of boring and bland here but when you put them on, they actually look really cute. The red wooden beads came from a necklace I got in Poland and the brown wooden beads were something I had lying around. The seed beads are gold and clear and came off another vintage necklace.


Thank you for looking! Please comment, criticize, say hi, or rhapsodize about the meaning of life. I really want to hear from you.

I LOVE that heart pendant! It's so simple but so so elegant. It has just enough "vintage" feel. LOVE.

Thank you! It is vintage and I'm glad I was able to keep the feel of that!
