Very Vintage Challenge

Today is Michelle Mach’s Fall Challenge, “Very Vintage Challenge”.  I was lucky enough to snag a kit, and participate. Of  course I forgot to take a photo of my specific kit, but here is a photo of the general kit Michelle sent:

Thank you Michelle for another fun challenge!


  1. Clever clasp and terrific use of your beads!

  2. Love it. Using the leaf and Lucite pendant for the clasp is perfect!

  3. Cool. Simple, yet gorgeous. I’m sure you’ll enjoy wearing this one. 😉

  4. Love the way you made the tear drop into a clasp – that’s perfect! Very nice designs – lovely!!

  5. Oh you and I were on the same wave lengths! I saw a clasp with that marvelous teardrop also!!! Love how you made the leaf a toggle bar! Very clever and such a pretty necklace!!!

  6. love the toggle! and the asymetrical earings are great.

  7. That teardrop for a clasp, how perfect! What a great necklace.

  8. Another genius mind using challenge components to create a toggle!!! I can’t wait to try something like this in the future. Beautiful necklace and earrings Linda!

  9. I would NEVER have thought to use the teardrop as a clasp…you are so clever!

  10. Very pretty! The branch focal is lovely and I like your creative clasp. Cute acorn too.

  11. I love how you used the teardrop and leaf for the clasp. That never occurred to me. I love the asymmetrical earrings as well.

  12. Eclectic and lovely ~ and another amazing clasp!

  13. I really like the clasp, but the earrings knocked me out! Very nicely done.

  14. What a clever clasp on your necklace! It never would have occurred to me to combine those two pieces. (That’s why I love doing these challenges–so many great ideas!)

    Hope to see you in another challenge!

  15. Your clasp is clever, and I’ve never made mis-matched earrings before, but do feel you pulled that off. Nice job!

  16. What a great idea for the clasp, I never even thought of that! Neat design, and so pretty!

  17. Ha! I think most of us forgot to take a “before” picture and used Michelle’s! LOL Love your necklace and the earrings – I kept trying to figure out how to use that awesome teardrop as a clasp, but just couldn’t get it right. You rocked it! 🙂

  18. The mismatched earrings are adorable, and the necklace is lovely and delicate. I love the use of the leaf for the clasp. The bead you picked for the acorn is beautiful.

    That was a great idea with using the teardrop as part of the clasp!

  20. Beautiful designs and love the earrings – so cute!
