Well, now I think I'm a jewelry maker! ...It all started when I found a jar of keys at an estate sale and decided to transform them to sell at the Polka Dot Flea.
I had seen the key necklaces made by Betsy at My Salvaged Treasures ...Oh my-Oh my; if you don't follow Betsy's blog you are really missing out. Not only is she a fabulous published jewelry artist, she is a fabulous everything artist! So creative and one of those bloggers who doesn't know what a superstar she is. Don't you love modest bloggers?
I always said I would never try making jewelry. Well, never say never! This is the first time I have dabbled in it. I'm sure if I continue making jewelry I will look back at this-my first attempt-and groan. But...we all have to start somewhere, right?!
I am going to display the jewelry at the Polka Dot Flea on the top-half of a dress form from Barr Display. I set the form on a box just high enough for the crinoline to skim the table. Then used a second crinoline as a table cover.
The bracelets are displayed on rolled up lace and old doilies.
Well, I can cross "jewelry making" off my list. ...Not that I have mastered it by a long (looong) shot; just that I have tried it!
OMG!!!! The Polka Dot Flea is just DAYS away!
