Vintage Earring Bracelet

Old vintage rhinestone earrings were soldered onto an inexpensive purchased silver bracelet (one used to make typewriter key jewelry). The clip backs were removed before attaching. I gave these as gifts to my co-workers and girlfriends for Christmas this year.

Believe it or not I didn't use a torch. I used a solder iron and lead free solder. It worked and those puppies are on there good and solid! I do stained glass (for fun and gifts) and I just used the techniques I knew. I'd be afraid I'd burn the house down with a blow torch!

Really cool. I was given a box of vintage costume jewelry and would like to try this.
