I love jewelry of all kinds but I am drawn to the charm of vintage pieces.
These are made by a local California artisan and will soon be listed on my online shop! This first necklace is made from a vintage chain, salvage pearls and a re-purposed WW2 military medal.
Often these medals were awarded for special services or actions.
This second one is made from a vintage embellished chain with sterling silver religious medals and a crucifix.
This one is cleverly made with two clasps, so it can be doubled and worn as a bracelet also.
I think there is something special about wearing pieces that have a history.
If only the medals could speak of the collars or uniforms they adorned or the rosary pieces could talk of the hands that held them.....
Each necklace is one of a kind.... soon there will be more to come!
Have a wonderful week!
