Mustang Sally- Jewelry Ensemble

art tie

This neckpiece started with another vintage tie stolen from my husband's closet this one had a sewn label with the name "Mustang" on it. I used French wire ribbons to create the flowers and leaves and stitched in several vintage celluloid buttons known as "glow bubbles" dating from the 1920's.

I first fell in love with these buttons because of the colors! Notice the golden glow in the center of the flowers. The buttons are made with a metal base, layered with a piece of shiny foil or tin, then covered with a "bubble" of celluloid that was hollow, semi transparent and often had a geometric design.

The top bracelet boasts several more glow bubbles" and a few Bakelite buttons, these are stitched onto a grosgrain ribbon base. The second bracelet is also made with a grosgrain base and vintage celluloid and Bakelite buttons are stitched amongst hand embroidered grids and edges.

The earrings and brooch were made in the '50's and up until now I had nothing to wear them with.

Yahooooo! You go girl!
