Everything was my grandmother's old jewelry except the charms. I have had a hard time finding jewelry to turn into junk jewelry from thrift stores around here Undecided

I used metals and wood for Singalala's necklace


there it is sideways!

some close ups





the first charm on the left is a ring I bought in Hawaii in 1991
the chicken is from when I sold pampered chef, they give those to you when you sell a certain amount
the next piece is from a necklace I never wore
the flower is an earring that I lost the match to, I got them in 1999 from my secret santa
next is a dolphin that was also an earring, I lost the match in a friends car in college in 1994 and kept it for this long!!
the sun is a charm I got in a swap this year
the beads and wire springs were also in a swap

thanks for organizing!

wow--I love the story of your old jewelry!  Plus, the wire wrap really adds to the funkiness of this necklace! So versatile with the mix of a little of this, and a little of that!

Wonderful job!

Oh my gosh!  I received from NikkiZBM this amazing bracelet.

The charms are birth control pills in resin.  So awesome!



Thank you so much Nikki!  Aloha!
