In these two high quality videos, Part I being 13+ minutes and Part II being 15+ minutes, I will demonstrate how to begin with a piece of vintage jewelry, such as an ear bob, brooch, scatter pin, shoe or dress clip, and transform it into a connector, ready for use in your very own jewelry creations.

If you've been collecting or perhaps inherited from your mother or favorite aunt, a gorgeous vintage brooch or pair of earrings, this technique might be just what you've been waiting for, as now you can get those timeless pieces out of your jewelry box, and transformed into a new jewelry creation of your very own.

* Also included in these videos, will be my detailed step-by-step wire wrapping technique, used in all of my jewelry designs. See more of my jewelry creations on my website:
* And, for your convenience, I've also included a short suggested tools & supplies list for this technique!

Also, PLEASE do not share these links with your friends...you paid for them...I worked hard to produce them.

I have used these techniques for years, and have been published in many Stampington publications, namely Belle Armoire Jewelry, Jewelry Affaire, Artful Blogging, Somerset Memories, Marie and Jewelry the zine. In fact, in the Spring of 2009, my piece called Vintage Rose Drop, graced the cover of Belle Armoire Jewelry =)
