Vintage Bowl of Bling

Whenever I go into an antique store, I look for little bags of broken jewelry. I like to pull the bits apart and mix them into new pieces. Epoxy glue works great to attach earrings onto other pieces for reuse. Here is a bowl of blingy bits that I've picked up over the past year. I keep it in my craft room for inspiration.

Ooh what gorgeous bling. We don't seem to be able to pick up bargains like that here in Australia, so you are really lucky

Very lovely to view.
I have many similar pieces that belonged to my mother and grandmothers and tie clasps of my grandfather's. I keep them in a wooden box, I should display some, like you have done.

Very cool. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
