My husband and I will be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary this coming August. I've been wanting to make an altered necklace for some time and this weekend I got down to it.
This necklace incorporates multiple things that are meaningful to me. The watch part glass vial had belonged to my grandfather, it still has the pasted number 15 on it that marks the number of years Rodney and I have been married. The key with heart charm at the bottom was in with my dad's metal detecting finds.
Several of the parts and pieces I used were salvaged from old costume jewelry and reworked into this design. Inside the glass vial I placed the word "Love" from an antique hymnal and some rhinestones from an antique 1920's flapper dress. The frame around the glass is a piece from the Vintaj line of brass.
I love my new necklace and will be wearing it a lot this year and beyond. I hope everyone enjoyed the Where Bloggers Create blog party this weekend. I'm still going through blogs visiting all the wonderful studios and creative spaces.
Hope you have a great day!
