Upcycled Deliciousness



...and just because the last couple of trees I made were so much fun,
I just had to make another .

This time I used copper wire
 reclaimed from about 30 feet of cable wire
....Thanks Rogers 

I repurposed an amber color  bangle for the frame
 and amber colored beads from previous projects...

hmmmm... I shall call it my

  Chocolate Toffee Tree  


Uplycled deliciousness 


Until next time

Glacier Medley




Jewelry With A Past




I created this simple yet elegant pendant 
from a blue crystal hoop earring,
a translucent blue dangler 
that belonged to a vintage necklace I had taken apart earlier for other projects,
added a a frosted blue , a pony and a translucent blue hex bead
 to pull the look together.


To complement the unique pendant,
 I choose to string translucent blue hex bead for the necklace
 to keep it simple. 

I love the cool crispyness of this piece....
it reminds me of a glacier glistening in the sun


Until next time

More Video Tape Adventures

Unlike my last design,
 I decided to use a plain DVD with decorative etching to to give it that little bit of extra flair.
 Since the bag was created during my beading frenzy ,
embellished it with some sparkling bead work
The handle I created with wooden car seat beads that I stained black,
 added a few clear chandelier beads on the sides to compliment the intricate seed beading in the center.
 Fully lined with a zippered pocket
 and of course with a zipper closure....



Upcycling glam at its best 




More creative adventures
coming 
soon
