Vintage jewelry finds

A couple weeks ago I happened across a jewelry sale with lots of vintage jewelry.
I kept going back to this necklace and earring set.
The best part?
All of the pieces were 3 for a dollar!
Yep, vintage jewelry for thirty-three cents a piece.
Well in the case of earrings, seventeen cents an earring.
You can’t beat that.
The worst part?
It was cash only and didn’t have much cash with me so I had to be selective on what I could purchase. 
I settled on the necklace set and nine other pairs of earrings.  I was able to scrounge up four dollars without digging into coins. It may seem like a lot but compared to how much I would have loved to come home with it is not much.
I somewhat regret that I didn’t come home to pick up some more money and go back and buy more.  But then again, it was probably for the best as I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do with what I brought home.
My plan was to wear the necklace and to makeover the clip earrings into either rings, stick pins or magnets.
I made a few of them into rings already.
I love the fun look of the red one.
It is prefect for the holiday season.
These I think will make great magnets or pins.
I love all the jewelry I found.
I hope I get lucky enough to find another sale like this one but I hope I have more cash with me!
