Vintage! Christmas charms

I have a handful of vintage Christmas charms, and, gosh darn it, I decided it was finally time to do something with them. This one is super shiny and sterling, so I added some icy clear Czech crystals for a versatile, monochromatic bracelet. Sparkly winter joy! And you could wear it with anything!
Then, there's the jolly old elf himself, Mr. Santa Claus. This charm is from the sixties, and I mixed him with some clear to bright red faceted crystals and shiny hollow gold beads. Very festive.
You know, the longer I write descriptions for my jewelry, the more I realize just how addicted I am to faceted crystals and pearls. Nearly every piece of jewelry that I make has one or the other. . .
I kinda want to put up the tree now. Too early?

  1. Pretty pieces! Those vintage button pieces are awesome too! Yes, too early for the tree. Maybe you should make a mini tree out of beads and things. Call me a dork but that sounds neat :)
