Vintage Redesign - (Feminine and White) "SOLD"

This week has been a very busy week for me. I had several days off from my corporate job, so was able to hunt for vintage elements to purchase one of the days, design jewelry some of several days, get a couple of orders packaged with pretty boxes and out the door, help paint the walls at the new shop one evening, worked my day job one day, and hung out with my 14 year old daughter last Sunday afternoon and on Friday as well.
This week I have created another seven new vintage redesign necklaces as well as about seven pairs of earrings this week, but didn't have the chance to photograph them yet, so I'll post a necklace I made the previous week for your viewing. The necklaces I created this week were very time consuming and several of them had a lot of wire wrapping which takes more time than a design such as the one I'm sharing with you today.
There is an incredible amount of vintage elements which created this necklace composition. I really like the focal of this piece and how it flows with the rest of the design. Necklace is now SOLD.
This photo shows the necklace hanging and surrounded by the asymetrical design elements I chose to use with it. I've chosen whites, black and clear crystal for this combination

Closer views of the two wonderful different sections of vintage elements.

I just love these feminine little flowers when working with designs.

Beautiful faux pearls with vintage clear Swarovski crystals.

All of these elements together create this fun necklace. Now SOLD.
