Necklaces by Cynthia Wutrich

These necklaces use vintage, rare trinkets as charms, including old keychains. 

Celluloid charms from sewing baskets (from the 1920s and later) and French Fry forks (1950s and later)! 

Cynthia's mother's necklace -- "she collected and loved elephants."

Cracker Jack and gum ball machine charms.

Cynthia displayed her handmade necklaces in the artists gallery. Sondra Leeds won a special necklace made for the convention raffle room.

  1. That is so fun! I was just talking to another blogger yesterday about how disappointing Cracker Jacks are anymore. Finding the surprise inside was most of the fun - now all they do is give out tattoos. BOR-ING!
