I just signed up for my first craft fair so I've been crafting up a storm. Here are a few things I've made lately, mostly vintage materials.

This one is made from a vintage pin, chain, and a lot of fake pearls.




This one has a brass fan charm, a glass bead, a salvaged rose earring, and some great vintage ribbon.




I call this one the Sword and the Spyglass. It has a vintage watch movement.



A vintage earring as a ring..


Some drapey chain and a watch movement


Miracle Elixir necklace... I was reading Wicked.


Thanks for taking a look!

Where do you find these gems! I love the Sword and the Spyglass, it's so chic and modern whilst retaining its vintage charm. But all of these are exactly what I've been scouring the shops for! Love them all!

Oh thanks. I get a lot of my materials from thrift stores and flea markets. I love taking apart vintage jewelry.

I love them all but the last one inspired by wicked as you say is my favorite very vintage but classy and a bit gothic

Lol, at first glance I thought the first one was a golden mustache! But it is very beautiful! Keep up the great work. *smiles*
