Vintage Inspired Jewellery

When I take the odd break from paper crafting I like to dabble in jewellery making. I really enjoy creating vintage style pieces and then taking old boxes and altering them to bring them back to life and provide a decorative home from my jewellery.

Over the past year I have added some of my jewellery alongside my paper crafts at craft events I have attended, and to my surprise my jewellery has proved quite popular.

I love working with old looking brass findings, I think this style works well with the little photo's I add to the pieces. These few here are particular favourites of mine.

I am currently working on some Alice in Wonderland necklaces and pendants and these will soon be available in the new Etsy Store I am opening. I'll keep you posted as to when they will be available.
