And the medal goes to......A.M.Keith!

I have been busy this week, creating!
I have a lot of new items in my Etsy shop, and still a few more to list, which I hope to get to this weekend.

One of my favorite  newly created pieces, has to be this one.........





This  pendant is actually an English, vintage 1936 sports medal, awarded for running. It is engraved on the back:

I love to think about the person that won this medal for running, in 1936!
A.M.Keith...was it a young woman, or perhaps a young man? Maybe it was just a teen, competing in a school track and field day. What was this persons life like? I just love the history and that mystery behind this wonderful piece! 


 I added a very old piece of hardware, and embellished that with a vintage button earring, made from a faux pearl and some rhinestones. The matte topaz colored beads, are rare vintage Swarovski crystals. 

What a great gift this would make for an athletic runner.
If you are interested in this one of a kind necklace, you can find it here in my Etsy shop.


Have a super weekend!
