hey friends! it has been QUITE a while since I've actually posted any of my projects - I'm all about the swaps, so others have put my stuff up for me haha

i made these necklaces for a friend in the Ongoing Wish Swap a few weeks ago and wanted to share them here because I'm kind of in love with them. Cheesy

enough chatter, onto pictures!

thrift store brooch (leaf shaped with rhinestones) with other sparkly parts wired on, cream ribbon that clasps in the back




vintage gold-colored locket with steampunk watch parts attached




old watch base (weird fact - i pulled off the first face which was faux-leather to reveal an odd looking israeli mickey mouse underneath - hebrew lettering and 'made in israel' stamped on the bottom!)



Thanks for looking!!!

I love them!

Brooch necklace may be my favorite, but the dangle-ing cameo is also really neat.
