So Charming: Vintage Rhinestone Button Bracelet

So Charming: Vintage Rhinestone Button Bracelet

Oh my gosh, it’s January already- how is that even possible? Happy 2017! And to start the new year off right, I’m doing it with sparkles.

I had seen versions of this idea floating around on Pinterest and just KNEW I had to make my own. I’ll be the first to admit that I actually prefer vintage rhinestone ANYTHING over real diamonds- crazy, I know! Anyway, this is wonderfully easy to make…the hardest part is actually collecting the vintage rhinestone buttons! But over time, I gathered a handful of pretties in different shapes and sizes. The common denominator (other than rhinestones, of course) is that they were all shank buttons.

How Booking Cute!: Miniature Book Pendants

Two facts you should know about me: (1) I love old books, and (2) I love miniature ANYTHING. My bibliophile tendencies date way back…in fact, I’m pretty sure it’s a genetic affliction. And now that I think about it, my obsessions with all things dainty is just as genetic.

So, why not combine these two loves and add in a third obsession- DIY Upcycled Jewelry?Read more ›

A Swoon for a Spoon: Cameo Pendants

Sometimes, when you stumble upon certain “bits”, you just have a vision of what you want to do…or try to do with them, as the case may be.

And that’s what happened when I came across trays of these dead stock cameos (dead stock = never used…so, vintage in age but otherwise brand new).

Flour Power Spool Jewels

I have what you might call a *thing* for old wooden spools. And by thing, I mean “mild obsession”, but there are just so many crafting possibilities with them! Case in point: these cutesy, kitschy necklaces.

I originally saw a version of these necklaces on My So Called Crafty Life, where mini craft store spools became dainty charms. But I am more of a “statement” necklace kind of girl, so I used standard-sized spools from my crafting stash. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.
