More Jewelry Fun

With all the winter coldness, Indoor projects have been abundant this past week.
I've had fun with letterpress symbols and made some pendants and a pr of earrings (i'm keeping)

Notice the Chain on these pendants

What I did was to take 3 different colors of ball chain from the hardware store. Cut them the same length. Wire wrap the ends and made loops, and then added a clasp. Then before I put them on , I twist them like the old twister beads from the 80's. They can be twisted loos or tight. I love the look.

These are small letter press exclamation points. They are also very light.

The earrings below are made from small brass tags I got off etsy. They are a lot lighter than they look.

And while browsing some mags yesterday at the book store, I saw a pillow similar to this one, and had the "i can do that" moment. Came home and whipped up this sample. Pretty easy. I think they'd look fun with numbers and black background fabric.

Dh and I also hit 1 garage sale and I ended up getting all this with his encouragement. Now I have to clean it, paint it and of course Sell it.

6 large white rockers
2 wicker settee's
and 2 wicker chairs

Have a great Valentines Day

Cute earrings Margo. I remember those twister beads. I had slews of them.

Are those rockers all wood? You keepin' em or selling some of 'em? I might need one for my front porch! Or maybe two...

I don't usually like rockers, but I love your six. Do you have any idea what you are going to sell them for?
