I have quite a few vintage ink wells that I collected to use at my son's wedding last summer and I've been trying to decide what to do with them. I decorated some to use on my spindle shelf. I was having so much fun with these that I decided to make up some more and put them in my Etsy Shop. Here are just a couple of them:
I dug into my stash of vintage jewelry and pieced together "necklaces" for each of them after applying some vintage-style labels. This is one of my favorites. The 'pendant' is actually the clasp from an old necklace and it has the most beautiful, raised, beveled glass piece on it. I added the other parts from a different piece of jewelry.
Each ink well has a rolled up page from an old French book I have but you could also fill these with vintage buttons, beads or even use them as a small flower vase.
Stop over and take a look . . . I've added several new items to the shop this week!
