Turquoise Tuesday – Vintage Dog Tag Bracelet

Vintage Aluminum Dog Tag Bracelet Genuine Arizona Turquoise BeadsYes, I just missed Tuesday again.  But I had a new bracelet to show you.  This one is made of REAL turquoise!  I just listed it in my Etsy shop.

Turquoise Tuesday… Kind Of…

Vintage 1949 Dog Tag Bracelet Amazonite BeadsThis isn’t turquoise but it is blue.  These bracelets are made with faceted Amazonite beads.  It’s named after the Amazon river, I’m not sure why, because it’s not actually found there and every picture of the Amazon I’ve seen is brown, not blue.  Most Amazonite comes from Russia or Colorado.

These are some of my favorite beads.  I love the color and the texture.  I’ve made several dog tag bracelets with them.  And recently I’ve had several requests for 1950 tags.  I’ve sold them all and haven’t been able to find more.

So now I’m making the bracelets in the second photo.  They are made with reproduction tags so I can make several just like this.  And I may make a few with some other beads.  They’re available in my Etsy shop along with all the vintage dog tag and skeleton key jewelry I have.

I Love Oklahoma Necklaces



No, I’m not from Oklahoma but I do have a lot of friends and customers from there.  So I created these necklaces for them.  They’re all available in my Etsy shop.

And I’m trying something new in this post.  Try clicking on the photos… that should take you directly to the listing in my Etsy shop.

Texas Tag Necklaces are on Etsy!

I finally got around to listing the Texas Tag Necklaces that I brought back from Antique Alley.  There are a few more that are on my shelf at Room With a Past.  If they don’t sell, I’ll be listing them later this week.  You can see these and a lot more in my Etsy shop.

Red Sari Silk

I’d seen several designers using sari silk in some beautiful designs so I decided to play around with some yesterday.  I love the feel of this.  I only bought one color but I think I’ll try more!

It’s very light & soft.  I think a necklace will be coming soon!

Look at the next Room With a Past sale for these.  Or leave a comment if you’d like one.  $9.00 + 2.50 s/h.  I can put different charms on it & will include an extension chain with a tiny vintage bead at the end so it will be adjustable.
