So who's with me on this one? My stash of flea market and thrift store vintage jewelry finds includes mucho rhinestones. (Can you tell I didn't study Spanish? I studied French ~ and a lot of good that did me!) Up until recently I had a phobia (for lack of a better word) about taking some of those rhinestones and using them for other things. Until I had an epiphany and realized that they look SO DAMN GOOD when they're added to OTHER things. Case in point.
Okay, so maybe you can't really tell what I'm talking about here. Let's move on to a (somewhat) better photo.
Can you see the bling now? I salvaged the rhinestones from a broken and very much I've-seen-better-days gold plated necklace with a broken clasp. The stones seem quite at home on the St. Joseph medal, no? And the rhinestone dangle came straight from the necklace as well.
Gotta love the crown charm. And the patina of the medal. The back looks like this.
St. Joseph pray for us. Amen to that.
And to change gears completely here, I want to thank each and every one my followers who has been so loyal and so supportive. It means more than you know. And as for you lurkers, I know who you are....and thank you, too.
Next time I'll be delving more into the Easter Egg Hunt Protocol (yes, there's a protocol ~ you weren't informed?) So stay tuned.
Have a great weekend.
