Jeweled Letters

 Hi everyone! I wanted to share what I've been up to for the last 6 months or so. It started quite by accident.   About 6 years ago I went to an Antique Faire in Coburg, Oregon. It's an outdoor affair that happens every September for just one day! Lots of Vendors bring their goods to sell and I was talking to one of the vendors that was selling beautiful jewelry. Well, I was kind of looking for some inexpensive jewelry to use for some of my craft ideas that was floating around in my head. And she mentioned that she had a couple of bags of "broken" jewelry that I might me interested in. She pulls out 2 LARGE bags full of broken vintage jewelry! I would say about 10 lbs. worth!! Yay!! I was thrilled! So I took it home and there it sat...for over 5 years!!! And last year I was getting pretty sick and tired of my craft room (10 x 10) being jammed packed full of STUFF! So, I decided I was going to clean it out and get rid of some of it. I told my husband that just couldn't bring myself to through out this jewelry!! He said can you make something with it? I told him that I needed to think about it. As I was sitting there I looked up on my wall and saw a letter S that I had decorated  with this and that and thought, well, why can't I put some of that jewelry on some more letters. I started posting them on my Facebook page and then all of a sudden, I had ORDERS!!! LOL! And they just keep coming! I've had to buy MORE jewelry, of course, and thank goodness the person I bought jewelry from years ago is STILL selling! I thought I would share some of them here on my blog.

 Some of my jewelry separated  in colors.

 Well, that's what I've been up to! Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you. What have you been up to? Leave me a comment. Which color of stones do you like the best?

Blessings to you!
