My junk jewelry drawer is an accumulation of more than 20 years of 'stuff', which I can't seem to part with. Broken jewelry and other trimmings usually wind up here.
It has been boxed up and moved to a new residence 3 times, each time weighing a little more than before. I find myself raking through this trove, looking for ways to rework these cast offs.
I placed a vintage crystal and Chinese turquoise bead onto a head pen, forming a connector to attach to a gold jump ring, fastening this dangle to the ornate hoop, adding the ear wire last.
