Last week the multitalented and sweet Deryn of Something Sublime proposed on her blog an inspiration create a piece of jewelry based on an incredibly gorgeous photo she posted. To see the photo, please visit Deryn's post here. This is what I came up with. This one was a personal challenge for me. I adore vintage but sometimes have trouble with it, earthy is easier for me, but when I saw the photo I knew what I was going to do, well, just about. I am not one to do multi layered strands either, but I pushed myself with this one, and I am so happy I did. Anyway, go take a looky, and see what you think. BTW, Deryn is offering a really sweet giveaway with this too, so if you are interested, you still have a day chop chop!
In this necklace I used part of an incredible Victorian brass pin that I was hoarding and I deconstructed it, that beauty in the center with the rhinestones, vintage rosary chain, a gorgeous chandelier drop, heishi pearl, rhinestone rondelles, vintage rose flower beads, brass chain, and faceted garnet strands. The next step in my personal challenge would be to wear this, and I am getting closer!

Thanks for visiting and I always love your comments!


Bri and I had time to do some junkin today. It was a nice relaxed Sunday, and we had fun browsing so many tiny treasures! Of course I didn't find what I was looking for, but I found STUFF I had to have! I could spend every day doing this.
I just adore this teeny cut glass dish, the color is lush. It is only about 3" long and 1 & 1/2" high!

Sooooo cool bags.....

Perfect pretty little looking for these in my next round of jewelry!

Rhinestones and pretty faceted stones

A lovely tin tray to put my perfume bottles on, I have been searching for ages, and love this one.

Hope everyone's weekend was as relaxing as mine, and I hope the same for the coming week!
