Saying Good Bye to Summer

I'm trying to ignore it, but summer is on its last breath around here in Boston. It was short and like a whirlwind for us with my parents moving out of our home and into their own, my sister Ina coming back to study, and sister Anne coming for a 3 week visit filled with great sight seeing.
Another great thing we did and that I really don't want to miss over the winter is all the flea markets we have been to. Even Lilly loved them! I amazed a great collection of vintage jewelry pieces that I can't wait to fashion into new necklaces and earrings. So many ideas floating in my head! I already made these two one-of-a-kind necklaces with them. I even made a third, but can't let go of that one.
The first one is made with this gorgeous black and white Cameo that used to be a pin or brooch. I love how it plays off the sparkling black beads on either side.

And this one here features a filigree Heart surrounded by lilac faceted beads in the same style. I just love working on these styles and there are many more to come!
