Recycled Vintage Jewelry

I always use only broken or incomplete vintage jewelry findings in my recycled projects. This unique key chain was repurposed from a vintage earring without a back clip. The metal earring is edged with rhinestones and securely mounted on a 1 1/2" wooden disc. I applied gold foil to the disk and sealed it with a glossy glaze, then attached a 4" key chain and ring.These wonderful old items would be discarded and lost forever if not repurposed into useful and unique pieces.
