Keys to Heaven and Hidden Heart

I just stocked my Etsy store with two new designs! 

The first is a wonderful statement charm bracelet called Keys to Heaven. This design was inspired by both the Saint Medal keys, which I love, and the stunning, (and rare) vintage Swarovski Cobalt Rhinestone flower chain. I used this on its own to create a double strand. 

The medal key images are of an Angel, Our Lady of Fatima, Madonna and Child, Our Lady of Fatima, and Our Lady of Lourdes. I also added seven vintage crosses of varying styles and vintage heart charms. These all hang from a repurposed heavy link chain. 

You can purchase this bracelet (and see more photos) in my Etsy Shop!

I also finished a new necklace called, "Hidden Heart." It begins with a great vintage cross pendant that has rhinestones and pearls. Playing on the wonderful pearlescent elements of the vintage cross pendant, I added crackle glass beads to a repurposed gold tone chain. The palette of this design makes me think of summer!

The second, shorter strand features a vintage locket. I added a Swarovski rhinestone to the front of the locket to coordinate with the rhinestones on the vintage cross pendant. 

So why is it called, "Hidden Heart?" Inside the locket, I added an copy of an antique sacred heart image and filled the locket with resin and gold craft glitter. 

You can purchase this from my Etsy store as well.
