It is, once again, time for my biweekly Thursday Thrift post, and I remembered. I almost didn’t. I got my photos taken last weekend and really felt good about how ahead with my blog post I was gonna be, almost two weeks early with a post sitting in my queue, and then I realized it was already going to be the first Thursday of the month. There were five Tuesdays in September, but not five Thursdays as I had originally thought. Okay, so here it is, this week’s Thursday Thrift post, a day early.
Today I am talking about jewelry, and even though it is brand new, it is most definitely worthy of being tagged for the #ThursdayThrift. Let me tell you about it.
Several weeks back, as I occasionally do, I happily left a comment on a fellow blogger’s post, but this was no ordinary post. It was a giveaway post for some beautiful handmade, re-purposed, vintage bead jewelry. The old beads were given new life and became what you see here.
Pretty, huh? Even though I was not particularly fond of the gold chain, I don’t really like gold jewelry, I loved the necklace and the shape of the earrings so I threw my comments in for a chance to win. Guess what? I won. And, I love the jewelry, gold color and all.
I don’t wear standout pieces of jewelry, but there is a first time for lots of things, and I thought these pieces went well with my Hip to be Square dress – or as I have previously referred to it as April’s dress. I stepped out of my fashion comfort zone a little by wearing red and gold accessories, and also by pairing dangly earrings with a statement necklace. I think it was a good choice, and I will happily wear them together again.
As far as thrifting goes, re-purposed vintage will do just fine over here on the Thursday Thrift, and a big thank you to Nicole from Beautiful Objects for making such a wonderful set of jewelry.
Anything thrifted, or re-purposed, on your blog? Leave me a link, and/or tag it with #ThursdayThrift here on WordPress.com so that I can find it.
As always, happy thrifting, or re-purposing if you prefer. 🙂
