More of the Grab Bag

I posted recently about a "grab bag" of old, vintage, and junk jewelry that I bought at a flea market. It had a few surprises in it, along with a lot of unusable things. I posted about a few of them here . I finally took the time to go thru the rest of the pieces and check out the pieces that were still intact for markings. These 4 bracelets were included. The first one
is marked "Goldette", so did a little research - Think I will keep it in intact! The second bracelet does not have any markings, but found several Goldette bracelets like it with the same charms, and found that there are Goldette pieces that are not marked. The Yin Yang bracelet (3rd) has no markings, but the style and clasp are like those made by Goldette in the same era. The orange one (4th) has no markings , but judging from the patina on the metal on the back of it, it has been around for some time. It is NOT bakelite - already checked. :-D

The necklace on the left is Napier, the broach is Monet. Necklace on the right does not have any markings.
Nice little stash from one "grab bag" ! :-D
I have already used some of the dark blue glass beads (l0wer right corner) in a necklace. Not sure what I will be doing with the pieces that I won't be repurposing. There was also some pieces of chain, beads, bits and pieces of things I cleaned, sorted and put in containers before taking a picture. As long as I have been blogging, you would think I would know better by now.

Glenda, you make your hobby sound like so much fun! I am collecting jewelry pieces and would like to try making a repurposed piece someday.
I am ordering some of those cute little birds you have on your banner. Hugs, sandi

Hi Glenda, I'll bet that's fun - finding pieces of jewelry of all kinds, never knowing what rare piece you might just find. I was given an old sewing basket one time and felt that same way about all the old sewing notions that were inside.

Sue said...

You really found a few wonderful surprises didn't you? I like that second bracelet a lot. I hope you decide to wear that one!

Hi Glenda,
Looks as if you found some nice pieces there. I see a lot of costume jewelry at estate sales, but I don't know enough about it yet to purchase any (with hopes of resale). I know people who sell it in cases at antique malls and do well with it.

Hope you have a good weekend. It's been beautiful, but as you've mentioned, we need some rain!

Hi, your jewelry haul is just what I was out looking for this morning, but came up empty handed. Did get some cool frames and vintage ornaments, etc. There's always tomorrow;-) The bracelets are really pretty and I love the beads. Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a good hunting weekend.
