How To Wear Upcycled Vintage Jewelry For A Modern Look

by BluKatDesign on Etsy

Do you love vintage jewelry but don’t know what to wear with it? BluKatDesign is known for upcycled jewelry. Some of the first upcycles I did were repurposed vintage jewelry that were remade into one-of-a-kind statement necklaces. The necklaces in the first four photos are sold but this will give you an idea of what to wear with your jewelry from BluKatDesign.  For a modern, everyday look,  I like clean classic lines and solids to accent the necklace; nothing too fancy because I like to be comfortable!  Of course, these pieces would look great dressed up with any vintage or modern style fashion! These sets were created on the fashion site, Polyvore but sadly this site was bought out by a clothing line so I wanted to share these sets here with you.

Tassel Necklaces: THE must have accessory

Tassel Necklaces: THE must have accessory

by BlukatDesign Upcycled Jewelry on Etsy

 

Long tassel necklaces are one of my favorite things to make.  I have been making one-of-a-kind tassel necklaces for years and now have them available in gold!  Each long necklace is one of a kind so you will not see the same one on anyone else. They are repurposed from glass, ceramic or wooden knobs, some with charms or unique beads , vintage jewelry pieces or even bobby pins! They are also available in silver, copper, brass, gunmetal and even colorful aluminum chain. Wear them alone for a classic look that will never go out of style or layer them with shorter necklaces for a unique statement. Don’t be afraid to mix metals for an updated modern look.

Handmade Repurposed Vintage Button Necklace Pendants

I love collecting interesting buttons and making  ( or upcycling into) simple stacked button pendants for everyday using both new and vintage buttons. It is a challenge finding cool new and vintage buttons that are unique and that will fit into my pendant bezels. The big brass button in the center I had since I was a kid so I decided to keep it, all of the others you can find in my Etsy jewelry and gift store plus more!  My favorite buttons are the antique mirrored filigree brass, patterned lucite and shimmery mother of pearl.  These button necklace pendants are so fun to make, nothing here is mass produced. Most of these pendants are one of a kind or very limited; it just depends on my button stash! I also love making button earrings and magnet sets too!
