One of my favorite finds from Saturday’s Renegade Craft Fair was Blue Ribbon Salvage. Melissa Abercrombie collects vintage medals from the mid-1800s and early 20th century and turns them into very wearable lovelies.
It was tough to choose but I limited myself to two Marvelous Items…
This medal celebrates 50 years with the Belgian postal service. Okay, not the most glamorous theme, but I just love the image of these two ladies sending letters across the world. (In sheer frocks, of course. That’s how I manage all my correspondence.) Front & back:
The second piece is a vintage Knights of Pythias medal that features a stag on one side and a knight on the other. His shield shows the KofP motto: Friendship, Charity, Benevolence, but I’m more a House Baratheon kind of girl. Ours is the Fury, indeed.
If there’s a specific image you’re looking for, drop her an email. She has tons of gorgeous creations that don’t make it onto her blog.
