Another Case of Faux

Took a pair of faux silver and pearl bead,  vintage,  clip on earrings, and  attached them  on some stampings.  Paired up with some more silver tone vintage beads,  new chain and findings.  Found the vintage earrings at a thrift shop a year ago, and posted about here.
As usual had already started working on it before thought to take a before pic......
Before
After
This was a fun piece to create.........
as many times I am dealing with one of a pair of vintage earrings, but this time had a pair and incorporated both in the same necklace.  Supplies have been put away for a while now with other things going on, but looking forward to  getting them back out and creating again.  I do need to get busy with the holidays coming up.
Had planned to go to the bead show/sale last weekend, but with all  the excitement  of my first Great Grand being born, I did not go  -   we do have our priorities. :-D

Linking up with "Show and Tell Friday"

PicMonkey is a real favorite of mine, the writers keep adding more and more. Quite the transformation from clip ons to necklace. Lovely.

Thats a great combo. I like it a lot. I bought a few pieces at a yard sale today. Probably won't ever do nothing with them. Lol

Did you know that you can actually add a pay pal button to your blog under something your selling straight off your blog? Tis true! (don't ask me how, but you can!) lol
