Pink Eye Glass Necklace??????
No...not pinkeye glass necklace but PINK eye glass necklace.........because I know that's the way some of you read it. :) hehe (that hehe is my cackle....practicing for the fast approaching Halloween season) For the ever so sweet Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound's Pink Saturday, I wanted to show you what I have been working on for The Vintage Nest shop. Do you like altered art? What's your favorite genre of it? I suppose I have been altering things long before there was a cool name for it but never jewelry. But lately that's exactly what I have been having a blast creating.......and the more I create the more I am treasure hunting for old stuff to use in this new endeavor of mine, "Fanciful Neck Adornments"........totally seeing coins, old keys, typewriter (remember those?) buttons and old patinaed drawer pulls......all in a different light. I let out a whoop of delight when I found this fun piece last weekend. It was already "altered" and I love it, for it combined my love of old paper ephemera with this new jewelry making passion. Someone turned a snippet from an old greeting card......a lovely pink carnation and blue forget-me-nots....into a brooch made from an old eyeglass lens. Is that captivating or what??? I have combined it with old world French script stamped vintage seam binding, vintage lace and paper beads, hand rolled from old sheet music, tinted pink and tipped in gold. It's edgy and romantic and would look great with that oversized boyfriend jacket and a simple t-shirt and jeans. I love the look and hope you do too. Many of my pieces make a simple statement that speaks volumes about our love of nature with a personal style. I would love to extend an invitation to my fabulous blogging friends to view my necklaces here and should you wish to purchase one a discount will be gladly given. Just note a "blogging friend" in the notes section on the purchase invoice and I will refund you right away.
