I have been making several necklace designs with vintage metal tassels.  I added aged rhinestones to each tassel and hung the long ones from mercury glass orbs, natural stones, brass beads, and rhinestone filigrees.  I added 30" of etched bronze metal chain for a simple look and ease of wear.  I really enjoy wearing these long necklaces with loose and flowing tops this year.  They also look wonderful layered with other shorter necklaces for an eclectic feel.

Terracotta Jasper
 OOAK Copper/Brass & Turquoise Cross
Vintage Brass Filigree

I made some shorter necklaces using smaller vintage metal tassels with the added rhinestones and rhinestone filigrees.  Perfect to pair with other In Small Spectacles pieces like the locket shown here:

Here are the tassels suspended  from natural stone skull beads and rhinestone filigrees.  Perfect for Halloween without going all Gothic and weird.  Just a dark, but fun, edge.

Have a great weekend!

I absolutely love earrings.  They are so incredibly versatile, are easy to wear, can really make a statement, and make wonderful gifts.  They just complete an outfit, don't they? 

I just listed some new designs. 

Vintage brass heart lockets

Old World antique brass coins

Carnelian and brass leaves~perfect for Fall

Copper-burgundy czech glass acorns

Vintage glass and antique Swarovski bezel set crystals~so warm
It's starting to cool off just a tad, but enough to get really jazzed about Fall and it's rich, warm colors.  By far my very favorite season.  Enjoy your week!
