Pretty Little Things
I've been working on these little pretty things that I can't get enough of ... vintage jewelry magnets! Not only are they adorning my refrigerator, much to my boys' dismay, but they also embellish metal lamp bases and picture frames in my room. Of course, if it where a perfect world, they would be wrapped up and on their way to different destinations across the world! (Meaning, I sold them in my esty shop.)
To make them, I am using large buttons and button earrings as a base and then, artfully arranging vintage jewelry pieces and even whole earrings on them. Many of the pieces I am using have seen better days so I do have to replace stones (thank goodness for my vintage rhinestone collection).
