Making Something New From Old

I have always loved vintage and antique jewelry and accessories. Jewelry easy to wear so no problem but what about shoe clips or dress clips or even that broken piece of jewelry.  I decided that I would start using these old forgotten pieces and create jewelry using them.  One thing I do not do is damage, bend ,shape, drill or alter a perfectly good piece of vintage jewelry. It must be broken or missing something like the other half of the buckle.  I do use vintage dress clips but never ever drill them I just wire wrap a bail and you have a ready pendant.  Here are a few examples:
