If you like unique and applique, you will just fall down crazy over the gorgeous jewels and bits at LoveHeyLola.
I so admire the interweb for having clever, funny (Jessica – the jewellery maker, is a crack up and writes a hilarious blog), one-of-a-kind shiz for sale. And big ups to Etsy for taking Paypal! My new necklace is on its way.
A beautiful filigree butterfly alights on this mechanical garden comprised of vintage clock and watch components.
Watch face – salvaged
Large gear – salvaged cuckoo clock part
Rhinestone flowers – thrifted, vintage earring components

The fine print:
This necklace was created using primarily salvaged and thrifted parts. Buying jewelry created in this manner ensures that you are not only getting a completely unique piece with character and history but it also means that negative environmental impact is kept at a minimum.
