well,after a little bit of a wait, my vintage french sequins arrived over the weekend. i have been experimenting with some contemporary sequins while i have been waiting on the vintage ones, and i have to tell you ... the contemporary ones can't hold a candle to the vintage! they are flat and the color is uniform. you would never know how old they are from the shape they are in ( 1940's - 1950'). i am completely in love and hope that my vision for them can come to fruition.
i have all these ideas, but of course, nothing is turning out exactly as i had hoped.
i am posting several pics of the few things i did today. i realize the pictures are not the greatest. it is overcast today and some of them came out a bit blurry ( too much coffee makes amber shaky i guess).
but, i wanted to put them up anyway.
so without further ado:
vintage bronze and silver sequin earrings. these are teensy tinsy sequins - 3mm & 4mm.
vintage turquoise and chartreuse sequin earrings. these are very tiny.
vintage turquoise sequin and apatite pendant
turquoise and chartreuse vintage sequin pendant
vintage 3mm bronze sequins.
