It started with my grandmother's vintage earring, as seen in the photo. She was a woman who loved her jewelry and I remember watching her get dressed and picking out just the right piece to wear with her outfit.
I now have much of her costume jewelry and was looking through it last week when I came upon this earring. Not exactly anything I would wear personally, but I did notice the center of it had a modern flair.
So out came my molding compound. I molded just the center, and then used the mold to create this little retro 40's flower. I love it. The perfect way for me to having something sentimental yet more my own style.
