Grandma's jewelry

So I'll start off by saying that one of THE things I remember most about my Grandma was her style!!!  I would consider her to be one of the most important female role models I had.  She had a very sweet spirit about her , loved the Lord, and loved her family.
When she passed away I asked to have all her costume jewelry and now I have a box full of clip earrings, bead necklaces, and all sorts of bits and pieces.....
So this picture is of a necklace I made a couple of weeks ago using two different necklaces.

She had this pair of clip earrings which I love and wear all the now like her I have a matching set.  She always had matching earrings and necklace....and loved shoes and purses.  It's in my blood!!

So yesterday I decided to raid the box again.  I bought a little sterling silver link style bracelet.  I used two sets of clip earrings that were falling apart and part of a necklace.....


  1. Great finds! So glad you stopped by! Love your header on your blog! I actually graduated from Defiance OH! Only lived ther 2 years though! Glad to find you! Have a great day!

  2. I'd love to have had some of my grandmother's jewellery. I do have one ring from my mother's side of the family, which is so special to me....but to have a whole box full? That's SO special.

    These are so gorgeous.
