This necklace and bracelet is made from vintage and new glass beads, some from discarded broken necklaces, other beads were purchased.
I included vintage facetted glass and rhinestone buttons in the design. The necklace has a vintage rhinestone closure and I used a button for the closure on the bracelet.
During the 60's a common art project was to take old and broken jewelry and glue it to velvet in the shape of a Christmas Tree. Then frame it and hang it up for the holidays. My husband's grandmother had such a piece in her apartment.
I inherited this collage of beautiful pieces, and removed as much as I could for future projects.
For the earrings I used two floral shaped bling blings that I had salvaged from the framed piece.
The pin was found on one of my scavenger hunts.
