KEEP THOSE EYES OPEN! THERE IS INSPIRATION EVERYWHERE……

FIRST OFF…..SORRY I HAVE BEEN MISSING IN ACTION THE LAST COUPLE WEEKS, BUT DON’T FEAR I HAVEN’T GONE ANYWHERE.  FIRST WE TOOK A SMALL VACATION TO A FAMILY REUNION IN FLORIDA AND I HAD EVERY INTENTION OF TRYING TO GET IN SOME CRAFTY TIME AND BLOGGING BUT THAT DID NOT WORK OUT SO WELL.  WE DONE SO MUCH RUNNING AROUND I DID NOT HAVE TIME FOR MUCH OF ANYTHING ELSE, AND WHEN WE RETURNED I FELT LIKE I NEEDED A VACATION FROM MY VACATION AND ENDED UP UNDER THE WEATHER FOR A FEW DAYS.  BUT DON’T WORRY BECAUSE I AM BACK UP AND RUNNING AND HAVE A TON OF IDEAS TO WORK ON.

OK NOW TO THE GOOD STUFF.  EVERYWHERE I GO I SEE INSPIRATION.  AFTER LOOKING AROUND FOR SOME THRIFTY BLING I RAN ACROSS SOME CLEARANCE JEWELRY AT WAL-MART AND THE LIGHTS WENT ON.  THE FIRST THING I THOUGHT OF IS HOW COULD I TAKE THIS APART AND MAKE SOMETHING ELSE OUT OF IT. …..  WELL HERE IT IS…..

I BOUGHT THESE 3 NECKLACE SETS, THE OUTSIDE 2 WERE $5 AND THE MIDDLE WAS $3, AND AFTER A LITTLE TIME AND PATIENCE I GOT THEM ALL BROKE APART AND ENDED UP WITH WHAT YOU SEE BELOW.  I ENDED UP WITH 5 LARGE PIECES FROM EACH OF THE OUTER NECKLACES AND 8 PIECES FROM THE MIDDLE, THAT IS A PRETTY GOOD PRICE ONCE YOU BREAK IT DOWN AND COMPARE IT TO WHAT YOU SPEND PER PIECE AT LIKE HOBBY LOBBY OR MICHEAL’S AND YOU STILL HAVE THE CHAIN YOU CAN USE ON ANOTHER PROJECT SO DON’T THROW IT AWAY, SAVE IT FOR A RAINY DAY PROJECT.

NOW TO SHOW YOU A COUPLE OF THE PIECES I MADE FROM MY JEWELRY DEPARTMENT FINDS….  I PLAN TO MAKE SOME DANGLE CHARMS AND POSSIBLE SOME MORE FLOWER EMBELLISHMENTS AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE I WILL COME UP WITH.
