I am a collector of "found objects"...so you know what that means! I have a bunch of junk-stuff-treasures. I cannot pass up perusing the thrift store or hardware store for my collection and I tell everyone to save their grandmas button box for me. My treasure box is full!
I have also been overly attracted to czech glass beads lately... so I have been working on using up my stash of beads and found objects.
The button is from the winnings of a drawing from a button swap by Michelle Mach last year. The key looking charm is a lamp finial from the hardware store. The czech glass beads are from an Etsy shop Mountain Shadow Design. I have also included some small green polymer clay beads that I made with green and translucent clay.
I love making polymer beads but have started making smaller pieces to work with all of my other treasures. I will share more of those soon.
I also made these earrings to go with this necklace.
These are made from copper head pins, czech glass beads and some pearls from a "treasure find" from an old piece of jewelry. I love repurposing old and beautiful things. There is always a story behind buttons and jewelry that have been worn by someone many years ago. Something to think about anyway.
Enjoy the summer sunshine and warm days!
