At Gales Designs, I'm making old new again. These bracelets are made using vintage jewelry parts. People have given me their grandmother's old earrings to make their own customized bracelets with a great family history as well, and I've gone to flea markets and antique shows to collect old pieces to re-make.
I love thinking that the pieces I use had a life and a history before I ever saw them. What kind of stories could they tell? Each one is completely different, although they're a bit fragile due to their construction and age.
I've used all colors to make these bracelets--pastels have been big this summer, but black and white are also popular. They're a conversation piece when you're wearing one, and you'll never have to worry about someone else wearing the same one!
