Pile of trinkets and a winner

I always like to save the best for last, so first let me share with you this little pile of trinkets I purchased at the antique shop. I am lucky to know a dealer that gets the best antique early jewelry odds and ends and calls me when she is coming up to the shop, (she's coming tomorrow, yay!)These little odds and ends are perfect for my jewelry designs. Some of you may look at this little pile and think what the heck is she going to do with those? That little pile is my piece of heaven!

 Here are a few of the pieces I created using some of the elements from the above pictures.
