I scored big today! A box of jewelry and findings was found in an auctioned storage unit, and I got to take it home! I wasn't quite sure what I had 'til I got home... and I'm excited to upcycle and start incorporating it into my wire pendants. I'm challenging myself to use every piece with creativity!
|Love this little finding on the bottom left!|
|I'm going to use the big silver disk with the apple bottoms somehow. I'm told apple bottoms is a brand of jeans. Can't wait to see how it turns out!|
|Cute, cute, cute. It's going to take me a while to get through all of this.|
|Apple Bottoms again. Isn't it wonderful?|
|Can you believe all of this way going to go into the trash?|
|Can you see what's engraved on the heart drop? |
"Barbie" ♥ I can't wait to see how I can incorporate this into steel wire.
|Ten pairs of cute little bunny earrings. Also in the box. Hmmm.... what can I do with these?|
|Handpainted by somebody.|
|I love that the big beads have a big opening! I 'm gonna wire wrap these suckers into something totally awesome.|
|Not sure what to do with these, either. I thought the hole would be bid enough to re-string, but now I don't think it will be. Pretty ivory with lots of iridescence.|
These are my two latest "favorites"! I've curled the steel into fluid hoops, and the bead(s) will slide from top to bottom!
I have fallen totally and completely in love with wire. You've seen a few of my name pendants... here's something else I've been working on.
