|Junque Necklace, $28.00|
I'll tell you all more about the trip when I get my photos edited but one thing that happened while I was there was a really fun shopping day with my daughter and sister-in-law. We went to downtown Waxahachie for lunch & some antiquing. Bought a lot & talked a lot. One of the things that came out of that day is that they decided to sell some jewelry for me. I'll be putting a package together & mailing it next week.
So, Lynne & Lauren, take a look at these & see if you think any of these designs/prices would do well in Texas. (They'll be at Room With a Past this weekend so may not be available next week, but I can do similar pieces.)
This is my very favorite necklace this month. I wore it out to eat before I left for Texas & got some compliments. It's made with a vintage chandelier crystal & lots of little trinkets & beads that I collected.
|Rhinestone Necklace, $42.00|
This is probably my second favorite necklace and was lots of fun to make even though it's not really something I would wear myself. The rhinestone piece is an old brooch & the beads have been repurposed from an old strand. I wired them individually instead of stringing them. I like that look.
|Couple Key Necklace, $24.00|
This one's a little more my typical style. But I "valentined" it up a little by wrapping pink & red beads around the skeleton key & adding a little collage piece.
|Pink Crystal Necklace, $24.00|
Are you noticing a theme? I have never used this much pink in my projects. But, Room With a Past is filled with pink-loving women & I think they're rubbing off on me. lol...
Here's another vintage chandelier crystal, this time a very light pink, with an antiqued silver Eiffel Tower, & another of those old beads. And, of course, a piece of pink ribbon to finish it off.
|Pink Flowers Necklace, $24.00|
These are fun necklaces. The pink enameled flowers were once a pair of earrings! One pair of earrings had SIX of these flowers. So far I have 3 necklaces from them. This one & a couple with only one flower. They even have a little pink rhinestone in the center.
So girls, let me know which ones you like & if they're still available after the sale this weekend I'll ship them to you along with some others from previous sales.
If you're in the East Bay area, come visit Room With A Past this weekend. I'll be there working Saturday from 10-2.
And if you're not in the East Bay or near my family in Texas but would like one of these necklaces leave me a comment. I may be adding some to my Etsy shop if I know there's an interest.
I'll blog some bracelet photos tomorrow.
