I have recently acquired a large amount of vintage/costume jewelry pieces. Now I'm not really one for either of these types of jewelry items, however I am TOTALLY for recycling and upcycling. So I started experimenting with a few of the items. The first experiment didn't turn out so well while the second experiment came out fantastic! The first was an attempt to make a large double pendant out of a pair of extra large fuchsia clip on earrings, while the second was an attempt to create a pendant out of an old broach.
I must admit, the second experiment is my new favorite item. I'm going to keep on experimenting and will end up posting the results as a mini collection of vintage upcycled jewelry. Be on the lookout!
