Hot off the work bench-the patriotic piece I’ve been working on for a few days now. I picked up this great WWII pin from a vintage market last weekend and couldn’t wait to make something cool with it! I love the way it turned out! It’s a conversation piece for sure, and it has lots of vintage goodness in addition to the old pin-a mother of pearl buckle, old blue button, and a stamped brass element. An old chandelier crystal and a tiny strand of rhinestones under the focal piece symbolize fireworks! Lots of sparkle in this piece! Blue Swarovski crystals and real pearls finish off the list of embellishments. It’s the only one of its kind in the world.
