The Vintage Pearl


My friend Steph and I had lunch this week at Taco Bell. Don't you just love a place where the food is so cheap you can shake the change out of your piggy bank to pay for it and still leave full? Steph was telling me that she found a gorgeous store on Etsy called The Vintage Pearl and she was really digging the hand stamped silver jewelry. I commented that I had some silver stamping tools but I had not dug them out in a while.
So, I went home and got out all the silver pieces and hammers and blocks and what not and made her this little necklace with her children's names on it. She was nearly speechless, words were not coming from her mouth, but squeals of joy were. The necklace looks better without my shaky camera angles, and I like it enough that I think I will make one for myself.

Judy, your jewelry skills are awesome! If you lived closer, I would be such a "pest", begging to learn!
