Vintage Medal Charm Bracelet




I'm really into vintage medals these days.  The more I can find at flea markets and barn sales, the better.  This is my most recent creation.  It was inspired by a vintage religious medal snagged at a local flea market ~ a silver Our Lady of Fatima medal. From there I added 9 more charms, eclectically mixed in both theme and metals, as per usual in my designs.

The other 9 charms are comprised of a silver starfish, a mini "crystal ball", two heart lockets (one antique brass and one dark and gunmetal-like), a cross, a decorative silver filigree three dimensionsl charm with a Swarovski 4 mm bicone bead attached, a silver key, a round antique brass locket and a vintage sterling silver and crystal rhinestone charm that was recycled from an old earring! Whew!

The rest of the mix is made of pearls, faceted pink glass beads, crystal beads and hematite beads.  I love the mix and the jingle. Now I'm on the prowl for more vintage medals!

I'm linking this up to Get Your Craft On with Today's Creative Blog.

I love that! When I was little, I was fascinated by my mom's charm bracelet tinkling away...I think I might have to start my own tradition.
