Tie One On!

Well, here is one of my latest projects...I've recycled this tie to use as a cell phone holder for my purse...and judging by the size of my purse, you may well understand why I need a special place for my phone. I wanted to make it longer but it would drag on the floor so I resized it again to fit. I used a heavy clear vinyl to hold it which also allows the tie fabric to show. I added the ring to make it easier to move it from one purse to another...stay tuned I'll be making more!

Not necessary but I did feel compelled to take this adorable
little tie tac and add it as a little bling bling!

Upcycled Jewelry and Etsy find

So I wanted to share some pics of a necklace I made from other older, reclaimed necklaces that didn't really jazz me...and I added some little black beads as spacers...I love the colors and it works with many things I wear not that I have a shortage of jewelry choices but in spite of that don't you often find you are still looking for just the right combination of colors.

Then I found this sweet little vintage set on Etsy. It is a clip-on pair of earrings and decorative clip for creating a pendant effect with a beaded necklace so I thought I would show how pretty it is on a necklace and it creates a fun and different look, too!

I love vintage (and new) jewelry and creating my own special treasures. This treasure was found at YesterdaysMemories09 Etsy shop.

Enjoy and save those old necklace and give them a new. recycled life!
