Vintage Style Dangle Earrings

Do you love vintage jewelry? If so, you are in the right place! I remake vintage jewelry parts into new pieces and also love to collect interesting vintage beads to make unique jewelry. Since I sold my last pair of vintage style blue dangle earrings on Etsy,  I decided to make more plus a bunch of new earrings with the cool beads I found. Some are made with new beads and others are made with a limited supply of vintage beads. Nothing here I make is mass-produced so everything is very unique or one-of-a-kind. Click on photos to go to my Etsy store for details.

Everyone loves sparkle right? I made two styles in a deep purple and one special pair in lavender with super sparkly rhinestone beads:

The Best Polyvore Alternative for Fashion Lovers and Bloggers, Etsy Sellers


The Best Polyvore Alternative for Fashion Lovers and Bloggers, Etsy Sellers

By BluKatDesign on Etsy


Early last year the very popular fashion Social Media site Polyvore was sold and shut down suddenly. This¬† left a lot of us fashion lovers, bloggers and Etsy sellers who loved this platform¬† without the ability to make sets by clipping favorite articles of clothing or accessories. There were some sites that claimed the would get a “clipper” soon or phone apps that kind of worked but are a pain to use. Then I stumbled across URSTYLE, so far I have found this site to work almost identical as Polyvore! I only wish we could find our followers and favorite designers now! Click on photos to take you to URSTYLE and for set details:

Modern Upcycled Jewelry Made From Electrical Resistors

Modern Upcycled Jewelry Made From Electrical Resistors!

My latest upcycling project is jewelry made from electrical resistors I’ve had for years. I finally came up with some unique ways of repurposing resistors on earrings and statement necklaces with a fun modern look. The necklace is super comfortable to wear with an 18″ steel cord, gray resistors and shimmery gray pearls. The earrings are fun, twirly and fairly lightweight. So far I make the earrings in orange, gray and turquoise, you will most definitely get noticed wearing these!
