I love to recycle, reuse, and re purpose stuff.
With my passion for collecting vintage buttons, findings and jewelry
I created the above bracelet and necklace.
BAKELITE cuff BRACELET
I used wide black waistband elastic
and sewed on 50 of my old bakelite buttons,
layering 2 and 3 at a time.
I started in the center and worked to each side.
After sewing on buttons
I hand stitched elastic ends together.
Easy project....just takes time.
The other day my friend Penny and I
got together for a fun girls "play day"
we wanted to try our hand at assemblage jewelry.
We never make a thing that day LOL...
just chatted for hours and
showed off our vintage findings.
I'd like to stop and thank my dear friend
Carole a Bohemian Market
for sending me many of her fabulous vintage findings.
How kind she was to share her treasures with me,
bless her sweet heart!!
With some of my own old stuff
I put together this necklace.
I added buckles, marcasite buttons,
and cross from an old rosary
to a sterling silver chain.
On to my next project
a vinatge white mother of pearl bracelet!
