January, Vintage Beads and jewellery findings

We have been a bit snow with adding more vintage jewellery, beads and buttons. The snow seems to have slowed everything down. Now its gone - at least for a short while. So this is our last photograph of the snow on our pond.
Snow in January 2010.
The fish did not seem to mind the weather, we kept the pond pump going and so it did not freeze over   

Here is a selection of the vintage jewellery that I have found and have identified the age of each piece. When we finally managed to stop snow watching!

Just some of the vintage beads and findings that have passed through our hands.

Second hand bracelet findings for making a bracelet. Circ 2000s

Salmon pink vintage beads made of plastic.

One of our most unusual finds - a vintage brooch probably made from an old piece of uniform with a crown royal design and surrounded by cut steel. The pin has been stitched to the back. Old red velvet backing

Many more jewels to be added to this blog. So bookmark for our updates.

I preserve the past. Researching family and local history. Finding about mine and other people's ancestors, is just one of my passions. I also love vintage costume jewellery made here in the UK. I write about my finds and like to research.
