I’ve got a little satin bag full of the sparkly costume jewelry that both my grandmothers used to wear to parties and I love to peek at their elegance, but I very rarely use them. They are a little too fancy for everyday wear for me and I don’t often have a chance to go somewhere where they would be fitting. So I’ve been on the lookout for some projects to use them with. I love their glamour, they deserve to be used and worn and these projects are just the ticket!
Vintage Costume Jewelry Christmas Tree – Burlap & Denim
Well of course! A sparkly Christmas tree! I love the idea of making a Holiday display that sparkles and shines with the glint of vintage jewelry.
Vintage Costume Jewelry Christmas Tree - Burlap & Denim
This pearl edged version is particularly pretty as well!
Great Grandma’s Jewels – Simply Julie
And here’s a way to make those sparkly jewels a little more suitable for every day use! Pretty little hairpins topped with something vintage and fun! These would be especially pretty for a little girls party hairdo!
Rhinestone Brooch Bouquet – Noaki Jewelry Etsy Shop
Ok, a bridal bouquet isn’t really everyday, but what an amazing way to carry memories of those who are no longer around for the wedding with you down the aisle? Such a beautiful bouquet!
