Rhinestones are a Girl's Best Friend
Sure, diamonds are nice too, but with the rising cost of fuel these days, rhinestones offer a budget-friendly alternative. Here are some examples I picked up at today's foggy flea market (brr...), as well as some other pieces I've had in my collection for a while.
Dazzling bracelets just waiting to be upcycled...
Some of these larger brooches have been with me for a few years. The leaf-shaped example belonged to my Aunt Dottie who, now in her 90s, still has great taste!
I inherited these early 1960s beauties from my grandmother. Though I'll probably make a necklace for myself with the crown pin, I'll never sell any of them.
