Treasure's Found in An Afternoon

I met some friends for lunch today and lucky for me I got there early.  As I surveyed the block for something to do until the expected arrival of the others, I peeped out a little consignment shop, with little expectations of finding anything to my liking.  But boy was I wrong! 

Front and center were three cases full of vintage, contemporary and all things jewelry..gulp !!  I immediately felt my bank card hopping in my wallet, not with excitement about what jewelry we'd find to wear, but with excitement about what jewelry or components we might find to take apart and create something new!  

Ten minutes later...I didn't have much time remember...I left with this......

Sterling Silver Pendant with a Genuine Baltic Amber (5.5mm)
This pendant has some pretty significant weight to it ...can't wait to make something special  for me!

And this....

Sterling Silver Pendant with Moonstone (5mm)
but wait...you haven't seen the best of this one yet.  I did the best I could with the camera, but the shimmer in this pendant is such a delight to watch...I've been twisting and turning it all evening.... for me too!   


All for the low price of ......drumroll please.....$35.00!!  Silver alone thse days is $43.00/oz., so I think I got myself some pretty good deals today...what do you think?
Pssst. here's a deal opportunity for you...hop on over to Wire Worked, where you have a chance of winning a great pair of earrings..but hurry!! 

Unveiling in bargains,

haha, you must not have checked the spot price of silver in the past 10 minutes - now over $45! Great buys, though - what's the last one? The blue flash reminds me of labradorite, but the rest of the stone isn't dark enough. Doesn't matter - pretty, shiny, ooh!

lol @ Maria, it's the same as the one above it..Moonstone. I had to sit it up to try to capture the shimmer. Silver prices are just crazy right now!!

Dee said...

Funny Angelina, I just hung it on a thick silver chain...was going to try to make something with it, but for now I think I like just showing it off by itself!
