How I Repurpose a Vintage Brooch in to One of A Kind (OOAK) Vintage Bead Necklace
In my Five Ways to Wear a Vintage Brooch post, I talked about making the vintage brooch in to a necklace, well this is just one of my many creations. To purchase this you are purchasing a stunning one of a kind handmade re-purposed vintage 1950’s brooch and 1960’s bead necklace. It is such a great look for summer. The necklace is 16 inches with the brooch being 1 inch.
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.
