New items in the shop — I’m feeling the gold love

31 Jul

I just added some new treats to the shop after finding myself on a bit of a gold kick. Also, each includes something I found on a single purchase I recently made at a flea market. Each piece is lightweight and whimsical (and $14 or less), and I had to share.

The flea market find was, I think, a key chain. It was gold and featured a short, thick chain (there was nothing to use for attaching keys, though) and three small charms, each cuter than the first.

The first charm I used was the tiny heart lock, which I paired with an enamel flower I found at an estate sale (click any pic for more):

The second charm on the find was a simple gold locket in wonderful condition. I attached it to a new gold-toned chain and left it as is because, well, I adore lockets and don’t think they need a lot of frills to be fabulous. In the listing, I also included another vintage gold-toned locket I had, with some three-dimensional flowers. You get either one you like — or both.

The final charm on the flea market find was my favorite: a tiny little teapot. Instead of putting that on a necklace, I made a little charm bracelet for it. It looked lonely by itself, so I also included a new, wire-wrapped genuine pearl. What an adorable pair:

I hope you enjoy my vintage and upcycled gold treats.
