Happy Monday friends!! As I’ve been quite focused on necklaces lately, this past week I decided to work on some other pieces.
I love earrings and its high time I made a new pair. I decided to stick to my palette of pink and gold and this pair features pink gold foil glass beads from the 50s and small pink pate de verre glass beads. When worn, they dangle quite cheerfully and are perfect for jazzing up summery outfits!
Then I turned my hand to making some new bracelets. For the first bracelet (pictured above), I had this lovely pink red glass foil bead that’s been bouncing about in my bead box for some time now. This bead dates back to the 50s and I wanted to make it into a focal bead but I couldn’t quite make it work as a necklace. Then I realized that it works perfectly as a focal bead for a bracelet. I dug out the few remaining links I had of this delicate filigreed chain from the 40s and everything came together.
For today’s last piece, I wanted a bit of a different look so I paired this vintage long blush colored bead with some gold and white rondelle beads and presto..a simple but interesting bracelet!
