I based the aesthetic for these vintage inspired jewelry on the jewelry created during the 1940’s. There are many great designers who fall within the time period of vintage jewelry. Miriam Haskell is one example. She would use glass leaves in her work. I was able to incorporate this element by versioning it using polymer clay. I tinted translucent polymer clay to recreate the effect of glass leaves and to complement the flowers.
If you are a DIY bride who likes vintage inspired designs, then this would be a good option. You could create a really beautiful custom piece of jewelry that could become a family heirloom. In the article, I included options on how to create this jewelry so crafters at different levels could make this vintage inspired jewelry and be happy with the end result.
