September Change It Up Blog Hop

Howdy everyone .. Today is September 25th and it’s Reveal Time for our Vintage Flair Change It Up Blog Hop ..

Let’s catch up on a few things before I reveal my designs ..

My Etsy Shop is up and running and I have almost 200 items posted ..  If you haven’t visited my Etsy Shop the link below will take you to it .. Thanks so much !

I hope to roll out a fall design within the next couple of weeks so be on the look out for all of those beautiful fall colors ..

My hubby “Don” and I took a short trip to Big Bear a couple of weeks ago .. We went to a few flea markets and a car show and we even took our sweet Abby with us .. what a fun beautiful day ..

Lunch time with Don and Abby ..

.. Moving On To The Reveal ..

The components shown below were selected for us to use by Brenda Sue Lansdowne our leader at B’sue Boutiques Creative Group .. Aren’t they GREAT !  We were challenged to create a jewelry design using only these components.  The challenge did have a  twist .. we were to use it in a way that we normally wouldn’t .. you could cut it up, use the back side or upside down .. let your imagination take off ..

Well my imagination was having problems so I stuck with the good old traditional ..

These are the products and tools I used on my designs .. Iced Enamels, Perfect Pearls and Daimond Glaze ..


.. Drum Roll ..

Using the largest component of the four selections I decided to make a vintage cuff .. The component was beant in the form of a cuff bracelet and spray painted white .. Ivory Ice Enamel was applied over the top of the spray paint .. I fell in love with the rose cameo offered at B’sue Boutiques and applied the same technique on the cameo but used different colors .. B’sue brass chain, rosary chain and a heart locket complete this Vintage Cuff Bracelet ..

I couldn’t do just one challenge piece so it was back to the design table to challenge myself again .. The component was beant in the form of a cuff .. Spray paint and Perfect Pearls was used for the coloring .. A B’sue Ring, brass chain, beads and pearls complete this Vintage Swag Bracelet ..

Ok .. just one more .. How could I pass on the heart stamping ..  Spray paint and Perfect Pearls was used for the coloring .. Attached to the center of the heart is a B’sue cameo with rhinestone’s around it and some sweet baby roses with leafs  .. Vintage pearls, rhinestone rondelles, glass beads and gold-plated chain complete this elegant necklace set ..

  1. 🙂 I think your imagination was working just fine! I love the colorizing and the little heart charm is a wonderfully sweet touch!! Wonderfully done Jann!


  2. Jann, I love that cuff and the wonderful addition of the crochet work. It is so soft and feminine. And your colors are soft and beautiful. You hit a home run with all three pieces. As usual, your work is beautiful! Well done, my friend!


      1. Jann ….. Your jewelry doesn’t remind me of the Hillbillies but does have a romantic look to them. Looks like you had a lot of fun with this challenge. Like me can’t do just one. LOL! When you get into that creative zone you have to just keep going. They are all so pretty and I need to try the ice enamels again. Cindy


  3. Oh, what a fun post, Jann! I “saw” and got the car right away, LOL! Must have sat in front of the TV too much as a kid! Your pieces are beautiful, as always. I love the colors on the swag bracelet. THREE, wow you outdid yourself!
