The Vintage Vogue Jewelry

First, a big thank you to all of you who left very kind comments on the dress yesterday.  It was fun to wear, and very fulfilling to get a UFO done!

So the day before Easter, I was in the fabric shop to get buttons for yesterday's dress - the bolero jacket, to be specific.  And of course I had to wander down the bead aisle.  That prompted an impromptu making of some jewelry to match the dress.

 I bought the 'plain' cultured pearl beads.  The other pink and flesh toned beads I already had at home.

  A little random stringing of some beads.
And a couple of french hooks, and voila.  New jewelry for a new/old dress!
You can find instructions for the earrings here and the bracelet here.
