Happy !

A lady approached me at the farmer's market on Saturday and asked if I would consider trading some earrings for some old silver jewelry she had. She was going to bring it to a consignment shop but they told her she'd have to polish it first. Then she thought about how long it might sit there before it sold. So, we made a trade. She was happy to have new earrings for herself and her daughter and I was happy to get her old stuff to remake into new. In my book that's a good deal and everybody is happy.

How wonderful for you! And, she didn't polish it is even better! Congrats my friend~

What fun! I always like the older pieces better, especially with a built-in patina. I can't wait to see what you do with them!

Oh, you lucky girl! I adore old silver jewelry like this. That shadowbox ring and the bracelet are to die for!
