    Lisa is so great I heard her talk at the #ifb conference she was my favorite speaker, maybe I’m biased because I love making jewelry as well.

    Wow, what a cool experience, and I love the earrings!

  46. This is an awesome series and i love the final result. It’s amazing what a little pair of pliers can do!

    What a wonderful post. I just love idea of transforming older pieces into something totally new and chic!

  54. This is SO cool! I have so many family heirlooms that I just don’t enjoy that I would love to turn into something beautiful and new. I will definitely have to shoot them an email. And also, it is so cool that she herself still made your earrings and did it all herself 🙂

    Love what a great series you are starting, I’m excited to see what’s next. I love Lulu Frost jewelry, I actually just bought the lips necklace with the pearl as teeth. Very excited to wear it. The earrings you made are gorgeous and thanks for letting us know about the service they provide with repurposing old jewelry.
