A lovely mix of new pieces made today! A gorgeous necklace destined for my Luxury Collection ~ I have reworked a vintage purple paste cascading branch as the centrepiece. Formerly an old brooch, and despite it’s broken pin to the back, in good condition to the front ~ the stones are a wonderful rich & bright colour. I love mixing up new & old to create interesting & beautiful combinations, & here I have used semi-precious Amethysts, vintage iridescent crystals & modern purple facets.
Next, onto a more subtle piece, perfect for my Everyday Unique Style Collection. Using some of the same vintage crystals, mixed up with vintage faux pearls & various other beads, drawing your eye to the sparkly centrepiece. This circular motif is not vintage but recycled from a broken modern bracelet, but still fits with my aesthetic & mantra of ‘Never Discard!’.
Finally I finished off with these two WOW Collage Necklace centrepieces. I get excited about building up these beautiful mini collections of disparate bits & bobs. Again combining old & new to create unique whimsical little pictures. A productive day, & then it’s time to pick up the kids from school!
