Sparkly! Blingy!

This is the kind of thing I see myself creating with the myriad of vintage broaches and earrings I have stashed away — from Martha Stewart Living:

But, seriously, people. Where would I wear something like that? Plus, there’s the fact that I can’t bring myself to part with any of the vintage rhinestones I’ve collected over the years. Every now and then I like dumping them all over the floor and pawing over them, but as far as using them for the art projects they were purchased for? Yeah, haven’t been able to bring myself to do that yet.

Actually, this has been something I have meant to do for some time, because I love vintage jewelry so much but never wear it…the least I can do is look at it on the wall. From Country Home:

Shannon I like the top part of the necklace, but not the longer part with the larger pieces. Jewelery is supposed to be worn! The framing of it just seems wrong 😉

Lara Jo It’s kind of ridiculous, I know. No one could REALLY wear something like that.
