Hi :). Thanks for coming by my blog and website. I love your "vintage thingie thursdays"!

I think it's awesome that your daughter is getting into jewelry-making. It is an addiction lol. When I am looking to pick up old jewelry pieces, I try to stay away from plastic of any kind. Some plastic can be sneaky and look like glass or pearls, so just run your finger around where the hole is. If it is plastic, the coating will come off. I know it sounds mean, but when you want to buy a quality piece, who wants to spend money on garbage lol. Look for glass and good solid metal pieces, even some wood pieces can be fun to work with. I made a really pretty rosary with two different reclaimed necklaces. Sometimes the clasps are the best part of an old necklace, and can be used as focals.

I hope you tell me how her creations are going and if you need any other help, just say hey :)!

Have a wonderful weekend!
