Shabby Elegance Repurposed Bracelet, and another Treasury

There is much news today! I have created two new items that I listed for sale at Graceful Leigh. 

The first item is earrings featuring vintage Saint medals and red pave globes.

The intriguing globes are wire wrapped with black seed beads and paired with matching vintage saint medals. The earrings capture an elegant, yet shabby mood.

The other item is a bracelet I call, "Blue Hope" because of the blue colors that remind me of Advent present in this piece. I discovered this beautiful vintage bracelet in pieces, with a still working clasp. I decided to use vintage chain to connect the pieces of bracelet.

From the chain, I have hung an intricate cross and a vintage, blue Saint Medal that picks up on the blue in the bracelet.

In other news, I am excited to be featured twice in a new Etsy Treasury!

Sacred Heart Bracelet and Advent

Sacred Heart Bracelet for sale at Graceful Leigh

A new bracelet is now in stock! I had just one bracelet left in stock, so I have been working hard to create more. 

Ceramic, orange beads pick up on the colors in the two-sided, Sacred Heart medal of Jesus and Mary. Vintage chain dangles, a vintage Mary medal in gold, and a blue Howlite beaded charm drop with a tiny cross bead add visual interest. You can see more detailed images in my Graceful Leigh store. 

Today is also the first day of Advent. May you each have a Peaceful Advent Season filled with hope.
