    I bought these 3 pin/pendants online a few years ago and wanted to post them as an example of successful upcycle. They were made from 3 different vintage components: buckles, buttons and broken clips 1930's-50's. I pin one on the flap of my funky canvas messenger bag for swap-meeting, but also on my jean jacket. They have a nice pendant bale, but not my style.

    I have a LOT of vintage bits and pieces that I rarely glue together,, yet I don't have a problem buying someone else's wonderful upcyle creation! Hope you also enjoy.

      Thanks Jenni - in my case I have a hard time gluing or drilling (altering) the original. LOL, but if I have a damaged component, it's a lot easier to upcycle. I love these though. Thanks for getting it!
