A Heart with Bling....

Last year, a very kind, generous person sent me a box of old/vintage jewelry to repurpose.  It was a gift of treasures to go thru and think of all the new creations that will be made.  Example - A pair of  heart shaped earrings, black with rhinestones - one missing on one, one finding broken - but both ready to be repurposed  into  pretty creations.  This one, I replaced the rhinestone - not a perfect match, but looks great to me as it stands out..
Before
Pleased with the results.....
                           After

Actually I made this necklace a couple of months ago, started the post, but never finished it as I am thinking the rondelles between the faux pearls are too big.  However, with other things going on, enjoying warmer temps, and Spring flowers, the supplies have been put away for a while.

Linking up @ "Show and Tell Friday"
                       "Be Inspired"
                       "A Favorite Thing"
                       "Amaze Me Monday"
                       "Metamorphosis Monday"
                       "Make It Pretty Monday"
                       
Looking forward to a great weekend and hope you are also!

:-) Lovely... I have a white heart that I'm planning on turning into a necklace one of these days. I like you, have a lot of things pulling me in all directions-- never enough time in the day to do all the fun stuff is there!
big hugs,
Cheryl

I would love to learn to make jewelry...but I have so many hobbies my hubs would go broke supporting yet another one! Your piece is just fabulous....

That's a wonderful piece! I am in awe of people who are talented like this. You did a great job!

I'm popping over from Claudia's "A Favorite Thing". I've been wanting to join you all, so I hopped in this week. I'm enjoying seeing what everyone is sharing, and I am glad you shared this transformation with us!

XO,

The necklace looks great as it is. I'd buy it. I have been looking for something black with a little white for awhile. It's hard to find.

The black heart is beautiful! What a pretty necklace it makes. It's true, crafts and hobbies have their time and place - when the weather is bad :)

Martha said...

The black heart is beautiful! Now I know where to go to admire jewelry..if I take up one more craft there won't be room in my house for my husband or son... :-)

How gorgeous. I wish I was smart enough to put things together like that. I love finding old junk jewelry...I just need to learn how to change it up! Hugs!

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

How pretty! I love black everything and what a wonderful gift for you to have all those things to go through and "imagine"!

Pat said...

Well...Glenda...it is good to know you have eyeballs, after all!

I love that heart! As always, gorgeous work!

We both need new glasses...it's been almost two years...last time it was longer. Anyhoo...I still remember the sticker shock from last time!! Hesitant about making an appointment...maybe I will drag it out awhile. Although, J is complaining about his frames. They sure don't make those like they used to!

Donna said...

Its perfect! What a wonderful friend to send you the jewelry.
Nearly missed this post!
Hugs,
