I have a customer who recently gave me a bag of jewelry, that once belonged to her Grandmother. She has requested that I design 4 sets of jewels for her, from a wonderful selection of vintage beads and baubles.
It was a lot of fun going through the bags and boxes of necklaces, bracelets and brooches, and playing around to see what beads and sparkly gems went together. After taking apart several necklaces, a few old earrings, chains, and repurposing a rhinestone brooch into a pretty pendant, I came up with the first of the four matching sets. I am really happy that I have managed to create "new" fashionable pieces that this lady can wear, while still keeping the sentimental value of the vintage jewels and most importantly the special memories of her Grandmother .
