Mullets, Crochet and Beads??

I'm wearing my jewelry making hat this weekend.  My love of vintage jewelry really pulls me towards jewelry creating. 

I love the look of vintage jewelry remodeling.  You know, put together a few vintage pieces to create a stunning new piece.

I've been studying this 1971 craft booklet.

I've also been organizing all my old jewelry stash.  Taking apart a lot of old pieces and sorting the beads.

I've been very inspired by these looks.

The jewelry, not the hairdo. 

That is one hell of a mullet though :->

Here is what I've been coming up with.

  1. Good God on the hairdos! Can’t hardly get past them! Love your crochet (crochet-ed?) interpretations. I’ve def decided I like cord over wire for beading these days. Just knotting tho–not clever enough to crochet.
    Again…WOW on the hairdos! I hate to think I was even ALIVE then, lol!

  5. I used to have one of those crochet rings! My great aunt used to crochet them. I had a ring and bracelet that matched. Even though I remember that the ring was very uncomfortable! Great blast from the past!

  6. I think I must have blocked it out because I’d forgotten that my mom used to wear her hair like that!
    Love the jewelry, especially the pastel tones. I’ve been working on my knotting lately and it is HARD — do you find crocheting easier or more difficult?

  7. My eyes! My eyes! Actually, I think I’ve seen a few of these ‘dos around here. The mullet still lives here in the South, especially at Wal Mart around 11:30 p.m. on a Saturday night.
    The colors you’ve used are delicious. I wish I could crochet!

  8. That book looks too cool and fun! I would be crocheting up a storm too. I love your jewelry creations.
    You are so making me want to go get my jewelry boxes out and create something too. I need to do that. I just moved here to Austin not long ago and my jewelry boxes are still not unpacked yet. …But they may be unpacked soon! 😉

  9. BAH HAH HAH HAHAHAHAHA!!! How is hair like that even possible?! I have to say “Bumpits” comes to mind right now. Confession time: I found two beaded/crocheted rings at a local thrift store and I snatched them right up! $2 each. I haven’t worn them yet.
    I heart your jade/red pony pendant. Very pretty!
