Sometimes we inherit vintage jewelry or find it at an estate sale or in an antique or vintage shop and we JUST can’t resist making the purchase. Have you ever ended up in this scenario? I’m sure you have!

We love this jewelry, it tells a story, its bold and beautiful – but sometimes its broken or just not our style. Well, have no fear – the crafty universe that is the internet has come up with some great ideas for using vintage jewelry in other creative ways. I have to be honest, I was delightfully surprised by some of these creative ideas.

We carry loads of vintage baubles at Evolution Home – and while our jewelry dealers take great care to make sure each piece is wearable and in good condition, we couldn’t resist sharing some creative ideas for NOT wearing your jewelry!

1. A Bright Bouquet
Bonus: it will never die! What a lovely idea to add some floral feminine flair to a space without worrying about changing the water! The fun part would be the hunt to find matching shades.

2. Bauble Bookmarks
How clever is this one? Attaching old brooches, earrings or necklace charms to a lovely ribbon and using it as a bookmark – a sweet hostess gift or gift for a little girl.

3. Framed & Sparkly
How many single earrings have you ended up with over the years? Or brooches that you love but just wouldn’t wear? Isn’t this a lovely idea for displaying them? They can be admired everyday!

This would make the loveliest bridal shower gift! Especially if you were able to use pins and brooches from the bride’s family!
