Razzle Dazzle Bling

In with the keys, in the package of goodies that Erin loaned me, was this marvelous rectangular piece that looks like it might have been a buckle, or some kind of connector.

I wasn't sure how well it would cast or mold, I didn't know if it would look as shiny and sparkly as the original once I re-created it in pewter.

But I think it turned out really well. I can see it as a focal for a bracelet, with a double strand of faux pearls or faceted shiny beads. It's in the Etsy shop, if you want to see more pictures, or take it home and design with it.

I really enjoy working with the old pieces. If I can re-create a replica of them, it makes me feel that I'm giving them a second life.
