Mixing Old and New

This week, I came across some old vintage jewelry that got me thinking about mixing pieces of old and new.  So far, I have been able to make two pieces - a bracelet and a necklace - that combine both pieces from vintage jewelry and new pieces.

The hard part was taking the vintage pieces apart!  But, I like how these two pieces came out.  The bracelet sold the first day it was listed.  Anyway, here are some pictures of these two new pieces:




If you would like information on these pieces or would like to see more of the 70 some odd treasures that I have listed in my Etsy shop, please come visit at RomanticThoughts.etsy.com.

Reminder - once I reach 100 followers on this blog, I will be giving away a bracelet to one of those wonderful first 100 followers.  I am having a similar giveaway on the Facebook Fan Page for Romantic Thoughts, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Romantic-Thoughts-and-Treasures-Etsy/144182138988286 .  One of the first 100 people to "like" the facebook page will also win a bracelet.

One last thing - I wanted to share my latest Treasury, "What Every Lady Needs" -

Thanks for stopping by - And have a GREAT DAY!
