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.

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