What I Wore on Saturday, April 30, 2016

by mary May 4, 2016

On Saturday, April 30, I wore this fun 1940s lounge/smoking jacket that I got at Dorothea's Closet Vintage several years ago.

I especially love the subtle pattern in the jacket, as well as the contrasting lining that shows on the sleeve!  I suspect this may have originally come with a pair of wide-leg palazzo pants.

With my jacket, I wore 2 necklaces that I made recently.

I made this first necklace out of a vintage Bakelite fur clip that was missing it's back that I prong set in copper that I had patinated with liver of sulfer.

I made the second necklace out of a piece of authentic sea glass that a friend had given me.  She & her husband travel & routinely collect it from various beaches.  For this necklace, I "set" the sea glass by crocheting around it with wire.

I'm a huge fan of both Bakelite & sea glass, so really enjoyed being able to make both of these necklaces!
