Recycling Vintage

I'm a sucker for anything vintage, even old broken jewelry pieces that need a little love to turn them into a useful item for today. I recently found a bag of vintage findings at my favorite thrift store containing two beautiful clip-on earring fronts.  They are both Sarah Coventry from the 1960's. It seemed a shame not to do something with them, so I recycled them into pendants. The backing is a flattened silver bottlecap. I drilled a small hole and added a silver jump ring. Voila! A gorgeous pendant or key chain fob.
