My Mother My Hope-vintage necklace
What I’ve been doing with my sleepless nights. I’ve been collecting vintage jewelry bits, rosaries and religious medals for quite a while, not knowing quite what to do with them. This past couple of weeks I have had a bad case of insomnia, so I bought myself some tiny pliers and set to work taking things apart and reassembling them.
This is my favorite one. It’s got two tiers, and I just love the mix of colors and materials. I also like the “My mother, my hope” saying, which is hidden behind like a secret message, close to your heart.
I made several more (not as ornate), but haven’t photographed them yet. It would help if I had a model. If I can get my act together, I will try to put them on Etsy.
