My Repurposed jewels

I love repurposed things but have only dabbled in a few creations.  
The top picture is of my old charm bracelet that I hadn't worn since High School!( I am going to my 40th year class reunion this year!)  I dug it out of the jewelry box and clipped a long chain to it . Voila a new vintage necklace!  
The bottom two pics are of mostly ancient buttons that were my great Aunt Bertie's.  They had been sitting in an old tin waiting for a brainstorm to make them useful.  I decided to hook them on to a link bracelet by using jewelry jump rings creating a new vintage bracelet.  This also can be a necklace by using the very same chain I use with my charms.
