Making jewelry with repurposed items

I have been collaborating with my mom making repurposed jewelry.  This has been a fun venture for a couple reasons.  I have been enjoying looking through detash and finding other unlikely items to make a piece.  I like spending time with my mom and this is a good way to do that plus bounce ideas off one another.


Lastly I am pleasantly surprised with the finished product.

These old wood buttons are stunning (left).  We put them with Chalcedony and green Swarovski Crystals.


I found these sequined balls in a detash pile and thought they would make a fun pair of earrings.


One of the funnest pieces we put together was this 9 crescent black and rhinestone cat necklace.  I took an broach and typewriter key to assemble.


The metal rhinestone is from an old bracelet that was broken. It is linked with the chain and just goes over your head.
