Every year I like to do a countdown to Halloween—the most wonderful time of the year. This year, I’ve slowed down my acquisitions but I still have a few new creepy vintage jewels to share. Starting with this sparkly spider Brooch. I got it in a box of broken jewels that I traded with Eric from Lucky Patina. One of its little legs is broken but no worries, I found a soldering kit on the sidewalk and mean to mend it on the weekend (since there is no trick or treating this year I have lots of time).
I also got these adorable owl pieces in the same trade. The pique earrings were missing their hooks. I added these blackened findings as a place holder until I can get down to the bead district again. Maybe a long walk this weekend? And the copper brooch has no issues that I can see.
