The process of reclaiming the studio is so close to being completed.
As I finish a cleaning / organizing an area or a box or as I bring another box out of the house and put it away, I reward myself with some "MAKE" time.
So I'm DOing and I'm using.
Plus -- I got stuff to sell.
I finished the Lace organizing project yesterday. Then I gathered a few things.
Like those old keys above.
I took my dremel tool (it is one of my favorite purchases ever) with a metal brush attachment and cleaned these up.
Not too clean -- I am pretty fond of that vintage patina.
Above you can see the "after" --- the one at the bottom really is nice.
I also gathered some bits and bobs and some Amazing Goop adhesive.
I made these.
Actually I made 5 --- Missed one in the first picture.
Here are the details
#1 --- Tiny key with a rhinestone button. This is a little over an inch long
#2 --- Antique silver butterfly charm.
#3 --- A personal favorite a tiny Mother of Pearl Button.
#4 --- Words of advice. The square piece is part of an earring. I used ModPodge Dimensional Magic to adhere the words.
I am actually wearing the Words of Advice one right now.
#5 --- Octagonal Bling. Also part of an earring.
A better view of the Aurora Borealis beads on this one.
Each will be hung on a 20" silvertone ball chain. (Yes I will sell the one I have on.)
They will sell for $15.00 - $20.00.
I hope people like them as much as I do.
But the most important part of this post ---- I am making things in my studio again. It feels so good to be awakening my creative self again.
Have a great weekend
