vintage tuesday & giveaway

hey there!  happy vintage tuesday!  time for another little giveaway.  and i just love this one.  i have piles (and piles) of fabulous vintage jewelry patiently waiting on my grand re-purposing plans.  but said plans always seem to get pushed to the back burner.  earrings, beads, antique typewriter keys, brooches, chains and necklaces... all looking so pretty piled up in their little containers.  they deserve to be worn.  to be shown off.  taken out on the town.  so i made a ring for one of you...

a sweet, spring-ey bright pink ring!  you just
have to leave me a comment on this post for
the chance to win.  but guess what... YOU
can make one yourself.  so easy peasy.
just shop for some vintage jewelry... look at
flea markets, thrift shops, antique malls,
gargage sales, etsy... pick something
small or something BIG for an extra fun ring.
this pink wire beaded clip-on earring was
perfect... i just snapped the back off.

get some blank, adjustable ring bands. i use
brass ones.  (shown below) find those at
craft & jewelry supply shops.  and GLUE
your find onto the ring.  umm. yeah.  it's
that easy.  use an industrial strength glue...
i like E6000.  and seriously.  that's it.  

go make some!  it's so fun!  and don't forget to leave a comment here for the chance to win this one...hooray!  and maybe... maybe... i'll get some made for the shop one of these days:)  xox...jenn

*** i'll draw the winner next monday and annouce the winner on next vintage tuesday! ***
