Catching up on my photos
The necklace on the left, if you look closely, has a little girl peeking out of the keyhole. That little girl is... I have no idea. A couple of years ago I bought a jewelry lot, in a actual jewelry box, and this beautiful little girl was in it. The picture was actually cut up, only have this girl in it, about 2/3rd of the picture was missing.. it looked like 2-3 people were missing. In my head I make up stories about this, Why was the photo cut up? Who's missing? Why did it get left in a jewelry box with a bunch of costume jewelry? What was her name? Was the jewelry hers or her mom's or what?
I think this sliver of a photograph was as intriguing to me as all the jewelry in the lot!
I always knew it would end up in one of my pieces -- so when I was making this necklace I knew I needed someone to peek out of it.. and I remember this girl.
The bracelet in the middle are all wheat pennies, carefully wire wrapped into a charm bracelet. (Penny for your thoughts! Hey, maybe the girls name is Penny?? ) I bought the pennies at a flea market in AZ during our trip last summer.
The last is a clock gear with a Egyptian scarab on it. I used new old stock vintage chain on this one, love that chain!
