Mixing Leather and Metal

I'm sharing a new creation this week! I'm loving this combo of mixed metals with patina and textiles. I have combined antique skeleton keys with leather scraps and my bullet casings with sparkle.
I have made these necklaces almost completely out of recycled materials. They have an industrial bling feeling don't you agree?

Stamping Like Crazy

Been on a stampede lately hahah. Seriously though, I've been hitting the metal hard lately. Here some of my new designs. These are all large brass 1.5" discs, hand stamped, textured and antiqued. They are meant to be rustic with character to each one. I've attached various charms, mostly vintage, to each one. I'm loving the way they turned out!

Key Necklaces

Here are a few more necklaces I made from vintage keys. One is actually a lamp key. I combined various vintage gold colored chain and amber glass beads for this long styled beauty. The other is made up of an antique silver colored skeleton en scribed with the number 1. I used gorgeous vintage glass multifaceted rosary beads and various chain to create this it.

Representin'

Feeling lots of home state pride lately! And I keep seeing love for MN. At the State Fair I saw many people wearing cute MN t-shirts. So I decided to create some adorable little state necklaces with MN sayings on them. Were they a hit? You betcha! These were such a hit, that I decided I would include a few WI ones too since I'm so close to the border.

Gold Rush Days 2015

After touring The Vault you are probably wondering where on earth would I put more treasure? Haha! This year I went to Gold Rush Days in mid August, but only for about a half a day. The weather was incredibly hot....almost 100 degrees. It was almost unbearable....almost... Here's what treasure I ended up finding.
