Back to Work. Celebrating a Buckle Bonanza

My favorite aunt died on Valentine's Day this year, and my cousin generously shared some of Aunt Emma's trove of buttons but also sent two cigar-box-sized treasure chests of astounding vintage buckles.  Time to get to work (just scratching the surface)!

Necklace #208.  Rhinestone buttons with a central rhinestone buckle piece (augmented with a button).

Necklace #209.  All buckles!  The sticks on the three large ones are interesting in themselves.

Necklace #210.  Cut-steel shoe buckle in center, with vintage glass and metal buttons.  

The all-rhinestone pieces have already left me - a wonderful art-trade with a mixed media artist.

The album of more recent and yet-available necklaces is at https://goo.gl/photos/uJFB3VUDePMFPEbk9,  The ever-exanding archive of neclaces - almost from the beginning - is at https://goo.gl/photos/GpN6kRMTVzpzjiQAA
