I posted several items in my Etsy shop the other day, both my own work and vintage stuff. I figured that I'd share some of my own shiny makin' results:
Unusual cuff bracelet of a bronze finish repurposed vintage casting and vintage button. An adjustable brass chain with lobster clasp keeps it secure. Fits up to a 9 inch wrist comfortably.
A repurposed openwork brass medallion focal is accented with raku pottery beads, spring green jade, filigree brass, glass, and brass chain. Measures 19 ½ inches long (excluding clasp). Focal measures 2 ½ inches in diameter.
The eye of a peacock feather, pressed in a glass and silver finish frame, makes a striking focal for this choker. Accented with glass and freshwater pearls, silver finished findings, and reclaimed faceted glass beads. Toggle closure. Measures 17 inches long (excluding clasp).
Repurposed large brass finish floral focal with rhinestone inset, accented with glass pearls in violet and green, faceted glass beads, aurora borealis crystal beads, and brass findings. Measures 18 inches long, excluding toggle clasp. Focal measures 2 3/8 inches in diameter.
Reclaimed crystal chandelier pendant, soldered into a focal, and paired with triple strands of iridescent blue-violet-green seed beads. Silver finish lobster clasp with extension chain. Measures 17 ½ inches long.
