You wouldn't think that a box full of old, broken, dirty, mis-matched and musty jewelry could make a persons heart flutter, but I am here to tell you otherwise! Created around a sad single clip earring with rubbery plastic petals and a bright pink jewel, this neclace became a work of art. I finished off the necklace above the flower with a vintage copper necklace with character, that may have seen better days, but now has gotten it's "second wind".

Oh, WoodenBee, for the past two months I have been looking at the cabinet back plate that I purchased from you and dreaming of what I would create with it. Well, the time is here and I would like to introduce you to this art deco work of art to wear. This design may have to become something I create on a regular basis, now that I have the kinks worked out. This particular necklace has quite a story in it's parts and pieces. Of course the filigree pendant is a salvaged cabinet back plate, but the center piece is a found button placed where the knob would sit. And last, but certainly not least, is the prism tear drop which was given to me from a friend's mother's jewelry collection. Oh, the stories these jewels tell!
