vintage jewelry.

Speaking of vintage...I had the most incredible find of vintage jewelry over turkey day! While I was home, my mama pulled out an old box and we dug through her collection of silver, turquoise, etc. The best part - she MADE all of this stuff! Apparently when she was about my age in the 70s, she took a jewelry making class and this goldmine is the result. She crafted the silver and everything. If she made this stuff now, she could sell it to designer boutiques for top dollar. It's all so beautiful. And lucky me...it's all mine! I bought some silver polish and polished the tarnished vintage metal until it shone. I've worn a piece from the collection every day this week!
