Re-Worked Vintage brooches

Just a couple of pics from the brooches I have at the craft centre as I haven't posted anything on here for ages
I made this for a friends Birthday
One of my boxes, the inside is decoupaged and the base is red velvet.
I haven't been over to the shop since Christmas and I think I got a place just a bit too late, but you have to give these things a go. Hopefully something will have sold. I did sell a few brooches at work though. If anyones interested please get intouch.
ps Thanks for following

Reworked Vintage

This is a picture of a brooch I have just made to order. The lady had an old buttton in the form of a giraffe she wanted to use, I would love to hear what you think, I'm glad to say she liked it. I now have a few for sale and am just designing a backing card to finish them off, I haven't had much time lately (see blog) to put much effort into this blog shop,
must try harder :)

Look forward to hearing from you

Vintage and Handmade

  This is a sample of my latest venture, all brooches have layers of vintage fabric and reclaimed jewellery and are hand finished with a lockable clasp, prices will be starting at £10,
Every brooch is unique I can guarantee you will have something no-one else will be wearing,

Do you have a sentimental piece of broken jewellery ? maybe an odd earring I will turn it into something special.

Do you have a special occasion coming up it's always nice to say Thank You.

Why not combine it with a matching Treasure Box a gift to remember.

Thank You for looking feel free to get intouch there is no obligation to buy.
