I’m back with another exchange to share, this time with the lovely Ashley from Fancy Fine. She has a great style blog regularly updated (I should take note) with vintage finds effortlessly translated into daily wear. Of course I was excited for the swap and she did not disappoint…
Lots of vintage goodies arrived including an old medical book, beaded and lace trimmings, a vintage slip,
antique postcards and a National Geographic from the 60s.
Every so often I come across a garment which I find so inspiring I’m compelled to create a piece of jewellery to match.
Such was the case when I unwrapped this little beauty, a wonderfully lacey off-white blouse.
I scoured my supplies for materials and re-emerged (not unlike McScrooge, money substituted for beads) with
a selection of marble squares covered in suitably lacey patterns.
self-made necklace: marble squares paired with brass beads and tubes

Thanks again Ashley, both for the gifts and inspiration! You can see a few of the necklaces I sent in action here, here and here.
