Projects 130-132 of 365: Vintage Inspired Jewelry March 16, 2011

I just love the look of vintage costume jewelry, so here are a few designs that I whipped up one afternoon, probably around Christmas time..  I’m not so fond of the bracelet….it came out looking a bit too sloppy, but hey, that doesn’t mean that someone else won’t like it..

 

When my new supplies arrive hopefully I will be able to make some of the bigger, chunkier designs that I drool over at all the stores!!

Well that’s all for now, but I do have tons more to post.  Hopefully I will find some more spare time tomorrow.  Hope you are enjoying my new jewelry kick 🙂

Projects 127-129: Jade Cluster Necklaces

These next three necklaces were all made with the same basic design, but with different colors of jade gemstones and then different crystal or metal spacer beads.  I especially love the flower toggle clasps used on two of these…It just gives the projects a more vintage feel….

The only downfall to these necklaces is that since these are all gemstone and real crystal they are very heavy, but then again, you won’t have to worry about losing it, because if it fell off you would definitely feel it 🙂

I made these back in November…
