Happy Valentines Day Everyone!! It's my second favorite holiday, full of red, hearts and candy-what's not to love? I adore vintage Valentines too and one of these days I'm going to make a lovely banner with them. The Vintage Valentine blog has some really adorable ones, so check it out here. I love the pure kitsch of this match one.
Every year I say I'm going to do Valentine's Jewelry and every year I remember that great idea around Feb 8th.. OOPS!!! I guess the reason I never remember to do "love/heart themed" jewelry line is because I make love themed, heart filled jewelry year round. I want to get better about marketing specific jewelry to specific holidays this year, so I'm writing it here so I'll be accountable and do a better job with the rest of the years holidays. Here are some heart and love themed pieces I have sitting here, yet to be made into jewelry .
These pieces are perfect for Valentine's Jewelry. My favorite is this vintage wedding one-
I am trying to find the PERFECT pink stones or crystals to create the chain with. The letters are glittered in a gorgeous fuchsia pink and finding JUST the shade has been hard.
This pendant turned out a little more "Goth" than I would have liked. I will have to add some strong chain elements and a large dangle to balance out the black on this.
I absolutely adore these tiny vintage rhinestone heart settings! They are only about 1/2" tall and have deep red stones. I wish I had them in larger sizes, but am thrilled to have them no matter how tiny.
I use to collect vintage candy heart boxes, but after all the moves the last 14 yrs they are all gone. Rob got me a heart box of candy today so I could decorate it up and start a new collection. It's also filled with my favorite kind of candies-chocolate covered nuts YUM! I would share with you all if I could!
