A Strike-ing Vintage Bowling Necklace!

vintage avon bowling pin necklace

I love creating unusual and unexpected pieces (remember the buffalo pin?) so when I found a vintage bowling pin I knew it was right up my alley! 

The pin itself was in great condition. Not wanting to spare a bit of glamour, I added a swirl of ebony rhinestones, a filigree backdrop and stitched onyx stones which I felt fit the mood of the piece better than pearls. I love how it turned out, and I’m sure the bowling league birthday gal who received it is having a ball wearing it as she sends her ball down the lane into that elusive pocket!

If you find a unique piece you’d like transformed into a piece of jewelry please feel free to contact me at suzanne@theelegantmuse.com.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Challenge: Can you find all twelve bowling references in this blog post?
