Vintage Beads

I got an e-mail a few weeks ago from Vente at Vintage Beads asking if I would be willing to promote their site if they sent me some free beads to make jewelry from.  Of course I said yes!  I was so excited to get my little package in the mail from Europe and was even more excited to see what was inside it!

Here are a few pieces I made with their beautiful beads:

This first piece is a lariat-style necklace that can be worn either single-stranded or doubled:



I handmade "beaded beads" to make into links that I interspersed with links made from beautiful teal and clear vintage Lucite beads and links from a vintage chain I had in my stash.



The ends of the lariat each have different vintage beads:  the first is made of silver-toned drops and the second is made with three frosted clear Lucite flowers.




Here's a close-up of the beautiful teal Lucite beads and the beaded beads.


The second project I made was a pair of earrings using vintage glass headpins, vintage crystals and silver heishi from my own stash:


The third project I made was another pair of drop earrings using vintage Lucite faceted pearl drops and vintage pink pressed glass flowers:



Thanks again to Vente for the fun beads she sent to me!  If you get a chance, check out Vintage Beads' great selection of beads and findings!
