Just some quick recons I did with some vintage jewelry my aunt gave me.

The first one was originally an earring, but it was missing its mate.

This one was a pin/brooch, but I'm not really big on wearing that sort of thing. I used pliers to snap off the pin part on the back and added two strands of chain from a necklace I found in my old dress-up jewelry* to make a super-long necklace.

Here's a better pic of the pendant:

*I think I should note that most of my dress-ups when I was a kid were actual vintage jewelry and dresses, not that cheap plastic crap they sell at toy stores.

It's not so bad bein' trendy...

These are both so rad. Smiley

Me too! I wish I still had some of the vintage stuff that got lost or trashed when I was a kid!
