My name is Violette Noble and I am an artist who loves to search far and wide for bits and baubles whose origins may not be fully known but are always antique, rare, eclectic or just plain odd.
I use these fantastic finds in all my jewelry designs and each piece is created by me and is entirely unique.
Greetings all you jewelry loving people out there!
I'm THRILLED! I just found out my blog and etsy shoppe is being featured on a great new site I discovered!
It's called "Making Jewelry Supplies" and they operate the largest Jewelry Supplies website featuring more than 30,000+ blogs!! I was simply AMAZED at the diversity of what they offer! Plan on spending some time there!!
I was looking through my vintage ephemera and uncovered some FABULOUS antique milk bottle caps! I was so enthralled with them that I decided to create some rings featuring each and every antique milk bottle cap I owned!
They all have DELIGHTFUL vintage graphics in classic colors! I hope you will enjoy wearing them as much as i did making them!
Take a look in my etsy shop for the lot and lots more GOODIES!!
Each image was carefully mounted in a wonderful (adjustable) deep bezel silver ring blank and covered with two coats of collage medium. After that was dry, I mixed two part resin and carefully poured it in. The resin magnifies the image and looks futuristic but because of the antique images still look wonderfully vintage!
There are 10 in all (see last pics) and each one is uniquely different BECAUSE they are assembled by hand. Any slight imperfections are on the original bottle cap which only add to the vintage beauty and make these truly rings that will turn heads! (ie:the staple OR the pull tab that is on the original bottle cap)
I started with an antiqued silver filigree and added a tiny gothic cross in the very center. The cross rises above the other treasures.....4 different "sections" around the filigree. A large gold gear with a tiny silver engraved wheel (with STARS!)from an antique watch and 3 different vintage wristwatch faces with gears behind them.
A fetching little victorian brass heart graces the bottom along with two different styles of brass chain.
This piece measures 4" (with chains) by 1 1/2" and is mounted with a jewelry quality pin back.
Each and every piece in my jewelry line has been meticulously designed and created in such a way as to last for years to come.
All finery will arrive in a handsome be-ribboned gift box making it the perfect remembrance for friends and loved ones alike.
