Salvaged Vintage Jewelry

vintage rhinestone screw-back earrings
A few months ago, I bought these pretty vintage rhinestone screw back earrings at an estate sale here in Dallas.  They were definitely pretty enough, but the screw backs didn't hold well and were very uncomfortable. Ouch!

So I decided to convert them to pierced earrings, and added a pretty blue-green bead and a silver dragonfly to each one.  Now, they're very unique, one-of-a-kind, and much more eye catching.  And they no longer hurt the ears!

I love how now, the rhinestones look like flowers.  I didn't see it that way before.  But the bead and the dragonfly appears to be the stem of the flower from a slight distance.  I just love them!
Repurposed Vintage Assemblage Earrings- Available in my Resparkable Vintage Etsy Shop.

They are available in my Etsy shop here.  You can see all my repurposed jewelry by clicking this link here.  I also do custom orders too, so if you have vintage jewelry, I'd love to create something "new" with it for you!
