More fun with vintage Sterling…

I found this very interesting (and substantial) vintage Sterling cuff bracelet online. I was a bit disappointed when I received it. Although it wasn’t terribly expensive, considering the solid Sterling is 5.75 inches long and over an inch wide, I didn’t care for the color of the stone and noticed the setting was incorrectly soldered and crooked! 

So thanks to my trusty bench grinder and favorite ball-peen hammer, I was able to transform and create a distinct new piece.  A touch more polishing and it’s good to go!!

What’s old is new again!

For awhile now I have been collecting vintage Sterling jewelry pieces to re-purpose into new designs. Pins and earrings become rings or pendants. Some need a bit of work -grinding off the old broken pin from a brooch or removing the screw back earring findings and smoothing the back. Sometimes I add my handmade fused glass to the new piece just for a bit of sparkle.  And everything gets a bath!!
