Valentine Hearts

Been rummaging through the web in search of perfect little charms and trinkets to buy for St Valentine's.
I found out this cute little heart ............
which is handmade of sterling silver Maltese filigree. This is sold online by Island Filigree which sells authentic handmade Maltese filigree made on the Mediterranean island of Malta.

Check out more HERE where you'll also find these charming Arrows left behind by Cupid and turned into unique earrings ......


Many artists utilise these charms and re-compose new jewellery from unwanted pieces or from odds and ends picked up from thrift stores, estate sales, jumble sales etc. Old necklaces, single earrings, broken bracelets... everything can have a second life. If you've ever come across anything which you fancied, even if a tiny glass bead or a little dainty charm, and wondered whether you should pick it up and own it but declined because you figured out it wouldn't be something you'd use after all, then you very obviously haven't met  Cindy of CL Designs, nor have you seen these marvels of hers....
