What do you do with beads from a broken vintage necklace – make earrings of course!

If you have any beads lying around from a broken vintage necklace, don’t throw them away.  You can always repurpose or reuse them in many ways.  I decided to make several sets of earrings with mine.  I think you will agree they turned out really well.

These stunning one of a kind handmade re-purposed vintage pair of earrings made from a 1960’s bead necklace.

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.
