The next one below is similar... it has all the items above, but also has soft pink potato pearls. The vintage crystal brooch was repurposed to become a pendant. it is attached to a silver-tone filigree circle.
I love this necklace - it's very simple - about 16 inches in length. The diamond shaped smokey topaz beads are much prettier in person. I just couldn't seem to show the light coming through them. I need to work on my photography skills!! LOL!! The rose in the middle, may be real ivory, but I am not sure. I was once a button, it has a new life now as a pendant. A chandelier crystal dangles from it. You can't see this other bead, but on the left, there is a tiger cowrie bead. It's approximately 25mm. there is mixture of gold & silver link chain at the end.
This one has less vintage pieces than the other pieces above. It too has a smaller tiger cowrie bead (leopard looking, rectangle), aqua quartz bead, diamond shaped smokey topaz, a vintage rose cabachon, vintage brass filigree bead & dangling vintage cameo piece.
This necklace is my favorite piece right now (it changes constantly) - I love the shell piece. It's vintage... but I don't know where it came from. I has little crystals in between the shells & it's attached to a filigree piece. I love the center piece as well - it's simple, but very sweet!!
Hope you enjoyed looking & I hope to have all these on etsy by tomorrow! Keep your fingers crossed!! :-)

This 1st photo is something Tracy made - picket fence pieces & old shutters. I could see this at my house, but where in the world would I put it???
Here's another "shutter" piece - made into a jewelry display, with vintage knobs & an old shelf at the bottom. I could see this in my house too!! ha ha!!
This is a clock made from old shell buttons.
Here is a tin board with beautiful magnets. You can't really see this bottle bracelet, but it's a cameo & she has tied a little pink ribbon above the crystal. I want this too!! LOL
Ok, so why was my day so stressful????
For starters, this morning, Seth commented before leaving for school that he hadn't seen our cat, Coco. I was thinking last night that I hadn't seen her either... Coco doesn't go outside (which my dad thinks is cruelty to cats). And, I do agree that Coco loves all the chirping birds outside & flies & all crawling creatures outdoors.... but she is truly an indoor cat. She will walk on the front porch, but hears the door slam & she runs back to the door, only to find it's closed.
