"Vintage Faith"

Hi all, I hope your having a great week. I just finished a couple of new designs and wanted to show you all. Unfortunately, the photos of one of the designs turned out horribly, so I'll have to re-shoot and show you later. I am becoming so frustrated with the way my photos are turning out lately that I'm seriously thinking of taking a photo class.
I wish I had natural talent like some of the amazing women around blogland. But I guess we're all talented in different areas, right?!

"Vintage Faith"
I designed it with metal beads that I oxidized for an aged appearance. They were way too shiny at first. I then added a Miriam Haskell pearl, a vintage Victorian button, a pewter cross and a couple of Swarovski crystals.

This piece is really beautiful on, I tried in on myself! :)

 I also want to give a big thanks to Kendra from "A Shade of Whimsy" for featuring me on her blog. She is so lovely and sweet and has a fabulous new blog. Please stop by and say hello and wish her well, you'll love her!!

I'm linking up with the sweet Debra from "Common Ground". Check out all of the other vintage inspiration today!

Have a great night.
