Downton Abbey Inspired

I've been so busy getting ready for the Challenge of Music blog hop this Friday, and The Bead Soup Blog Party at the end of March, I haven't had a lot of time to make anything else. But I was so inspired to make jewelry while watching Downton Abbey, I couldn't help but follow through on a couple of my ideas. I know there are MANY out there that love Downton, too!

Lady Mary always has the best dresses and the best jewelry! This necklace was inspired by a necklace she wore to dinner one night. Her necklace was more delicate, and had teardrop pearls. I couldn't find my teardrop pearls, but when I do, I'll make another similar necklace. In the meantime, black crystal drops stand in nicely!

Next, is a necklace inspired by Mrs Hughes' chatelaine. I have always loved Victorian jewelry, and I would kill to own a REAL chatelaine!! If I ever find a small pair old scissors and a mechanical pencil, I'll add them!
I had some vintage watch chain, so I used some of it, sparingly.
The rhinestone oval is from Vintage Groove, lock and key are Vintaj

Bring on Season 4!!

  2. These are both so beautiful. They would certainly fit right in with the beautiful clothes on DA. I hope DA brings in a handsome, dark haired hunk.
