Recently I was sent a good-sized stash of vintage costume jewelry by a woman (Denise) who found the items among her mother’s possessions. There are many wonderful pieces! The best part of all is that Denise told me I could use the items to benefit Conservation Northwest...her donation to the cause. She told me she is a wildlife rehabber and seems to have an especially great fondness for owls.
|One of Denise’s favorite “owl accessories” as she put it|
|Chunky Lucite bangle bracelets|
|Oops, this one didn’t last long! Yay!|
|Glass moonstone brooch|
|Plastic or wooden bracelets with bakelite color schemes|
|Lisner thermoset leaves necklace|
|Hand-painted myrtlewood pin, souvenir of Oregon in the 1950s|
|Striped Lucite bangle bracelets...or owl eyes if you prefer!|
