Vintage Rhinestone Jewelry

Hiya folks! 

I've gone down a slippery slope thanks to my wonderful mother-in-law. A few years ago she shared some of her mother's vintage costume jewelry. While I loved the sparkle I didn't have the nerve to wear any in public. I just wasn't the type to draw attention to myself...

Until now.

This is a beautiful Demi-Parure which reminds me of holiday times. I haven't worn the clip earrings (or any clips) yet - too matchy-matchy for me.

The smokey gray bracelet has a fantastic asymmetrical rhinestone encrusted clasp. The brooch flashes blues and greens in the light.

I think this is my favorite set, even though I haven't actually worn it yet. I can hold it and stare into the huge yellow, green and peach center piece for hours.

This necklace opened the door for me to explore my newfound eccentricity, as I call it. It was the first piece I wore and will always hold a special place in my heart.

I've since started researching and collecting more pieces. I'll share my finds here. I'm even opening up another shop (yes, another!) to *really* share fun finds. As much as I'd like to keep all the sparklies, I know there will be even more down the road. 

Thanks for visiting today!
