This Old hinge ...Makes an awesome piece of Jewelry ..I love Love Love it ..Plus I mixed up my Chains for the necklace and it really adds that wonderfu vintage charm ...!!!
This was an old Butterfly Hinge ....with chippy rustic paint on it ...I added the birds which I am in love with ...and of course some vintage jewerly finds ..and a nice chunky vintage chain ..and it's perfection ..or so I think !!
Lastly ...is another Skeleton Key I have finished up ..the color of the vintage finds on it are a favorite and match so very well a bracelet I just bought from Lisa Loria of Vintage Bling ...So It's going to be hard letting this one go ...
I mis-matched the chains for the necklace and even added an extra jewelry find mid way up ...so it lays at the neck ....
Oh gosh I have a bunch more ..and I can't wait to share them at the show ...!
It's always nice to be inspired by someone else...sometimes we need that little push to take us in directions we never would go on our own or wouldn't think possible. It's a great way to stretch ..learn new things and new possibilities ..and find that our God Given Talents can flow over into many areas if we are willing to let him work through our minds and our hands.
No matter what your talent ...If we give our Minds and our hands to God and tell him they are his ...just give us the work to do and we will do it ...he will guide us and show us that we can do anything through him.
I am so blessed by him !!
