New Life – Upcycle

So my Mom found a bunch of my Great-Grandmother’s or Grandmothers (not sure which)  broken jewelry to take apart and make into new creations. I am super excited to upcycle them into incredible pieces. It remains to be seen if I will be able to part with them, hahaha. Here is a picture of some of the new parts I get to work with 🙂 The white necklace in the second picture I am going to basically take apart to put it back together almost exactly as pictured, I may or may not put my own twist on it, but it is so gorgeous I can’t wait to wear it out! So here is the before shot….will post the “afters” as they are executed.

The picture below is from my photography project – project 365 (take a picture every day for a year)….If you want to see any of the other project pictures, they live at this link: http://public.fotki.com/aameri/my-albums/photo-projects/project-365/?view=roll

Blue Sparkly Necklace

Click on the pictures they get bigger!

Price: $15.00 (USD) includes shipping

This necklace has blue translucent glass beads and silver on a simple silver chain with a rhinestone pendant that I think perfectly completments the other accents. End to end this necklae is 18 inches, with an additional 3 inches of adjustable chain by the clasp. It has a lobster claw closure.

I swear as I keep making them, I keep trying to find excuses to keep them. I know that I can’t keep all the jewelry I make or there will be a serious overflow issue in my house. I just end up loving them all so much. So you can be assured that anything I make it made with healthy doses of love :).

Size: approximately 18 inches with 3 extra inches of adjustable chain

Color: Silver and Blue

Material: Metal

Price: $10.00 (USD) includes shipping

Handmade Pink Stretchy Bracelet, made with pink glass large beads and pink, blue, purple, and some yellow and orange pastel glass seed beads for good measure. These bracelets have become one of my favorite things to make. I love all the colors and textures I can combine and it is a lot of fun! Goes without saying that this is made with love :). It is 7 inches in length but stretchy, so will fit on someone with a larger wrist as well. I tend to make things based off of my wrists. This one is a little bigger than some of the other ones I have made so far.

Size: about 7 inches around

Color: Mainly Pink with other pastel accents to match

Material: Glass beads on elastic bracelet cord
