New Vintage Style

There is something vintage-y about these connectors I found yesterday at Michael's Arts & Crafts store.

They hollered out to me for some reason. I am often drawn to vintage style pieces, but usually kitschy vintage.

I know, it was probably the SPARKLE!

I also know I need to stop buying and focus on making! :) I wish I had time tonight to make something because I quickly figured out which beads I think would work really well with one of these as the focal piece in a 3 strand bracelet.

I had made a necklace with some miscellaneous imperfect pearls that was also sort of vintage-y and I think the remaining pearls will work with this connector.

As always, we shall see! The sketch pad in my head is right about 50% of the time. It's the journey, the making, the trying, the erroring :) that makes life great!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and as always, let's go have a great new (and creative) week!!

"Stop buying and focus on making"?!?! That has been the story of my life for years now. I've kind of given up. Take heart-you are not alone:)

I hear ya w/the stop buying and start making. Just when I think I can start making things I want, I have orders for specific things to fill (usually findings and not actual jewelry) and I've got all these goodies that I'm just itching to use!
