There is one project I have been itching to try turning this vintage floral bracelet I found at Nacoochee- Antiques into a necklace. This is actually a project in the Bead Simple book, which also has a few others I’d love to try.
I am really surprised how much I enjoy using vintage findings and even retro resin in my jewelry. I always considered myself more romantic than retro! I think there is a unique element to the use of vintage- nothing looks quite like it. And I love the way it can be taken apart and paired with contemporary elements to create an eclectic look. Have you found yourself surprised by the items you are attracted to when beading?
