Crown Postale- Don't mind if I do!


Andrew Thornton has been hard at work the past few weeks, creating beautiful beautiful things, such as these brand new Crown Postale pendants. He creates the pendants using filigree and bezels, attaches them together, and fills the bezels with vintage stamps and paper ephemera. Some of the resin has been sanded and buffed for an even more vintage feel.
I got my hands on these 4, and used one in this bracelet design below! They have such a romantic feel to them!  I used this patinaed pendant as the bracelet focal and attached strands of simple wire looped vintage glass rounds, and some ruby and turquoise beads with brass spacers. The toggle is from Vintaj Brass Co. As a little added embellishment, I added a small bronze heart charm from Candice Wakumoto.




                                                                                                         Love
                               that
                                color!

Be sure to check out Andrew's Big Cartel shop for the Crown Postale pendants, and other really cool things he's making. I have one of these, one of these AND one of  these coming my way soon! I can't wait!

    I love the bright colors. Can't wait to see what you make with the skull key, Lorelei! I like the skull craze in beads right now, reminds me of pirates.
