You have a 2 inch head pin and a 1/4 inch pearl…you have a good inch of wire left over after making your loop. Throw it out? Of course not, now you have just the right amount of wire for a small eye pin.
I am fortunate enough to have an Aunt that does theatre costuming. The company was getting rid of a bunch of old jewellery that people had donated over the years, and guess who got it? I have been happily deconstructing things from this treasure trove and every now and then, they come in very handy. These earrings are made with glittery acrylic beads I got at McBead and I just happened to have these great glass crystal AB beads from something I had dismantled. Let’s face it, there is NO such thing as too much sparkle!
So in my previous post I confessed to a bit of a shopping spree at the local Michael’s. Well, you can tell me if you think it was worth it 😉
The main brass pieces of these came from McBead, they caught my eye the last time I was in the shop. I didn’t know what to put with them though, and didn’t fancy anything in my stash with them, I came across these glass bicones in a yellow, topaz and smokey quartz mix. I only used the yellow and smokey quartz, I am thinking the topaz ones will look better with copper.
Until next time folks, I am going to attempt to crochet…wish me luck, and my husband, he has to sit beside me and listen to me swear.
