Vintage Trinkets

Vintage Trinkets is a new line of embellishments for our Make a Memory department but they are so pretty that I HAD to turn some of it into jewelry! Flowers, birds, brass and gold....rocking that antique vibe and very romantic.

Here I added Swarovski pearls to make a sweet charm bracelet.

Here's a cute statement necklace using the large bird cage, this is on a really long chain that we sell exclusively at the Mapunapuna bead shop. The large beads on the side are from another new line called Design Elements that co-ordinates beads in different textures and colors to come up with some very beautiful mixes.

And here are some earrings I made with some of the left over beads and embellishments from the packs I used for the bracelet and necklace. If you have a chance to come to the Mapunapuna Crafting Carnival on Saturday June 25 between 10 AM and 3 PM you can see me demo this ring...

Remember BIG rings are trending right now! Or you can attend our make and take to create a simpler version of the bird charm bracelet that looks like this...

And we are still doing our Bead Shop demo on the faux suede bracelet that looks like this...

Of course there will be a lot more going on that day so it's going to be very exciting and I hope you can make it!

  1. I haven't seen the Vintage Trinkets at the Hilo BFC store, but I will look for them. The pieces you made using the trinkets are very trendy and should appeal to many jewelry crafters.

  2. I think Caroline was able to get our shipment in earlier then the other stores so that we could have it for the Crafting Carnival. If the other stores don't have theirs yet, it should be soon!
