FAVOURITE VINTAGE JEWELERY PIECES TO MAKE A STATEMENT THIS FALL

This post is also called “little treasures I find to sell on Etsy but find it difficult to part with”.  Autumn (or fall for those further afield) is well and truly underway here in Northern Ireland.  This is a time when I start switching the fairy lights on.  It is also time to light candles.   I wanted to share with you my favourite pieces of jewellery.  While it’s the time to wrap up warm, we can often put the jewellery pieces to one side and stick to scarves.  You don’t have to though.  I hope the following pieces inspire you as much as they have done me.

 

 

This is a one of a kind vintage repurposed necklace. It is made from a selection of 1970s leaf brooches and another 1970s flower brooch secured on a cooper colour chain. You will most certainly turn heads with this necklace. I have called it The Fall as my tribute to the season.

 

 

A stunningly beautiful vintage brooch / vintage pin from the 1950s. It is gold tone with green coloured crystals. A beautiful large flower design.

 

 

 

Period is 1950s and this is a stunning long vintage multi coloured autumn bead necklace. The beads are just lovely and in oh so many colours to match your outfit!

 

 

A stunningly beautiful vintage brooch from the 1950s. It is silver in tone and has citrine coloured crystals. It is shaped with little hearts around the brooch, such lovely filigree work.

 

 

Wow a stunning necklace from the 1950s. It is autumn brown in colour with three strands, you can see from the photo the lovely detail of each bead.

 

 

What are your favourite go to items of jewellery for fall / autumn?  I’d love to hear.

Review of The Lifestyle Blogger Boutique

As you are aware I delight in all things vintage but I also love items that have a vintage style to them.  It’s so much fun mixing the old with the new as I do with my one of a kind vintage jewellery pieces.  There are just some times you want to buy something that is nice and easy that will go with your current outfit without having to take time and go through the vintage stores.

This is where The Lifestyle Blogger Boutique comes along!

I am rather partial to cute scarves, make up bags and bags in general!  So The Lifestyle Blogger Boutique is simply perfect. The wonderful items for sale look adorable and by definition are stunningly beautiful.  Anything that doesn’t take ages to add colour to an outfit in my opinion is just fabulous!

How to turn a Charm Necklace, into a One of A Kind (OOAK) repurposed vintage bead necklace

Another way to use up a broken vintage bead necklace is to incorporate the beads in to a modern necklace to add a bit of vintage charm.  You can see this in the stunning one of a kind handmade re-purposed vintage necklace made from beads from vintage necklaces below. It is such a great look for summer. The necklace measures 40 inches so it is long.

So why buy vintage?
For me vintage means quality, it means it was made with care and attention that mass produced cannot match.

For me it means history. Whatever the item it has been pre loved, it has been pre cherished. It is a key to the past with every item having it’s own history and every vintage item particularly the older pieces have a beautiful romanticism about them, quite often we won’t know the history of each item, but it is easy to be swept away to past times .

For me it means individualism. Most items are one offs or limited finds. There are so many different styles and beautiful flourishes to vintage items that our modern mass produced items just cannot come close.
