Vintage Jewelry

Last night I was working on remaking vintage jewelry into new jewelry with a twist.

I'm really glad that I took the time to see if any of the pieces I was about to mangle and rip apart were signed - one rhinestone necklace that I bought at a rummage sale for probably a quarter (and used to wear) in the early 80s was signed and is worth a lot more together than apart!

Some of the jewelry that I was working with was old and brittle, so I won't be able to remake it the way I wanted to originally, but that's the way it goes sometimes.

Today's quote comes from Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
