Finds Inspire Jewelry

I was browsing at a local antique mall last week and came home with two interesting finds. One was a tea cup full of old metal jacks and the other was a bundle of vintage silver plated spoons. Each inspired a piece of jewelry and hopefully will become other jewelry in the future and not just disappear into the chaotic void of my studio.

The first piece that I made was a necklace using the handle of the spoon. The design is a tall vase of flowers with a pierced design around it. I surrounded it with faux pearls and crystal beads.

The jacks inspired me to make a necklace of game pieces in the style of Susan Lenart Kasmer, only not so full as hers.
These two are now listed on my Etsy shop.
