This is a sneak peak of a larger project I've been working on. I was in a bit of a girly mood last weekend, and decided to play around with some jewelry findings and no-hole beads. My favorite is the little peacock brooch (far right)
I covered the displays with white velvet. Of course, I couldn't stop with just three little boards! Come back on Saturday for a look at the whole display!Yesterday I went to a craft store to pick up a tube of gold rub'n'buff, which I needed for the jewelry display. What was supposed to be a quick stop turned into a much longer trip, since I kept wandering around the store finding more things to add to my basket. I don't have any pressing need for the paperclay, but bought it because it's never in stock when I do want to buy it!
Continuing clockwise from the clay, I picked up a set of Martha Stewart no-hole beads for making beaded handbags. Most of the beads are pastel, which was exactly what I needed. I also found some little metal charms which I'm planning to use as stamps. Some of the smaller ones may be good for making tooling leather books. I grabbed another paint brush (can never have too many!) My last purchase were a couple sheets of embossed metal. I'm not sure what I'll use them for yet, but they were interesting and in the clearance section, so I grabbed them just in case.
