Bit of Bling

When on a road trip recently, had a bit of down time before a wine and cheese event, and it was to hot to relax on the balcony - no cool breeze even tho it was on a lake. Hot out there.............
So pulled out my jewelry supplies I took with me (see - I can make a mess on a table where ever I go), and played a bit. Almost had it finished by the time I remembered to take a before pic.........
The brooch I bought at an estate sale that I posted about here. The after pictures I took there were pretty dark, so retook when got home. Then after a bit of "fluff and puffing"............

Very Victorian looking don't you think?

Also, made this one for one of my Grands, but forgot to take a pic, so daughter sent one she took. Grand chose the faux pearls and red crystals for me to combine with the vintage crucifix for her.

My small attempts at being creative lately.

Have a great week!

Glenda, your creations are gorgeous. What a lucky grand to get to pick her own embellishments and have a grandmother who can design beautiful jewelry for her. Have a great week. laurie

Really beautiful Glenda!
You should really set up and etsy account, link it to your blog and start selling!
Love the view out there too!

All girls like a bit of bling, me too, but in the house not on me. Keep up the good work. Richard from My Old Historic House.
