Stone, Glass, Clay, Flowers, Watch Parts and Gears

Bev's necklace & earring set

My wonderful sister, Jody, commissioned me to make two necklace and earring sets using Vintaj brand components and findings.  I love the brass metal and the style of these necklaces; an eclectic mix of stone, glass, clay, flowers, watch parts and gears. 

Nancy's necklace & earring set

I was walking through Hobby Lobby and found free project sheets using Vintaj products and fell in love.  I grabbed each sheet and later found a project booklet put out by the company.  Jody wanted something special to give to her sisters-in-law, Bev and Nancy, as Christmas gifts.  I was touched she came to me. 

Each necklace contains an oblong bead I made using dried flowers from my/our niece, Sarah's, wedding bouquet and cream-colored clay with glitter.  There's a round bead with dried pink rose petals from my church and the same clay.  For me, the necklaces are a way to connect our families.
