The FamiLee Jewels were vendors at a Spring Shopping Spree at the Women's Club of Albany a couple of weeks ago. The Women's Club is located on Madison Avenue in a beautiful old Victorian house right near Washington Park. It boasts high ceilings, original hardwood floors, magnificent wood molding, fabulous fireplaces and stained glass windows that are a treat to look at. It was a pleasure to spend the afternoon in that lovely environment.
My newest Treasure. Brass coat check  disks.

The Women's Club is doing some Spring cleaning and they came across this basket (actually a take out food container) full of brass tags from the old coat room. They gave them to me after seeing our jewelry, knowing that I would make good use of them.  The only caveat was that I drill #22 for attachment to a necklace that one of the members had purchased from me. I was happy to do so.
I worked up #3 in a necklace for myself and have plans for many more.

My number 3 necklace

You will see many numbers in the coming weeks at The FamiLee jewels on etsy.
