I have always had a love for the "old", whether it is decorative glass, accessories, clothing, or jewelry, I can’t resist the thrill of the hunt! I have spent the past few years hunting (or shopping) for great finds at garage sales, flea markets and estate sales. I noticed an abundance of costume jewelry at these sales and came up with a unique way to "recycle" the vintage brooches, earrings and shoe clips into fun and flirtatious (some might even say gaudy) rings and hair accessories. These rings and barrettes are one-of-a-kind, so you won't be able to find them mass-produced and sitting on the shelves at Wal-Mart. These pieces can help accent any outfit while giving jewelry of the past a new life. I hope you enjoy wearing these unique and recycled accessories as much as I have enjoyed making them!
