Recycling Vintage Baubles

It's time to get back to creating some new pieces.

 I need to restock my inventory. I find it easy to know what I have by sorting everything in old hosiery boxes and vanity trays that belonged to my Mother and Grandmother.

It takes many earrings, pendants and beads to create one piece.

 My friend Delores and I decided to take a trip to the Candlestick Park Antique Fair this last Sunday.
 Brrrr it was cold and not very crowded. We were in and out of there in an hour.

 I love to think about all the different lives that have touched so many small treasures.

It became overwhelming. There was so much to pick from that I only bought a couple new pieces.
When I got home I was newly inspired. Stay turned for my new creations...


  1. I can't wait to see what you create from your latest finds! Great day at the flea market with you!

  2. I'm glad I found your blog. I also have alot of inherited pieces and I don't wear alot of them because they are sort of dated or missing little pieces. I will have to follow and see what you come up with! Inspiring!
