New treasures for me !!!!

I am so excited to have found some treasures today. I had a little money to spend and a bit of jewelry earnings as well so we went by the thrift store up near us and for once, they had some nice jewelry. They rarely have any good stuff, but I won the lotto today !! Here are some of my goodies that I cannot wait to transfer into some new pretties !!

these pretty buttons were on a chain and made an ugly bracelet, but taken off they are lovely and can be used in lot of projects !!

here is the chain, I will make another nice braclet out of it after changing the clasp and  adding an extension on the other side. It is a bit short.

a really ugly hair clip , cut apart and it is a bunch of cute  ceramic , tiny , tiny cups, and some stone beads. Cute little cups, but ugly barrette !!

this necklace is stunning. Beautiful  handwoven links, crosses with an etched design with blue glass beads, taken apart I can do so much with this piece, so many pieces to use !!! Triple length, so it is nice and big !!

IMG_8322 another look at the piece, some crosses removed already , a really pretty set !!

these pearls are the most stunning color and good sized. Put a penny next to show. Picture does not even do it any justice, they are heavy weight, mint condition and the string they are tied on is the same color as the pearls , hand knotted in between, nice quality but I will be cutting them apart, lol !!
