Vintage Creations

Vintage baubles can be created from modern day treasures. You can find vintage inspired components at your local craft store to incorporate into your jewelry.

On my most recent trip to NYC, I discovered vintage style buttons adorned with Swarovski crystals, perfect for a string of pearl beads I had been saving.

I created a vintage style necklace using this vintage style button with a string of pearls and added rosaline Czech crystals dangling from sterling silver chain. Use wire wrapping technique to attach the button at the shank to the pearls and chain.
