Made from my stash of bits and pieces, I like how they turned out. I haven't made any jewelry in ages but I think I might start again, how fun are these for spring?
They have a totally funny story to them too.
So I asked a friend to shop for beads and findings for me in Toronto for supplies I need for the Wonderland swap and the sock monkey swap. In exchange I offered to make him a craft and he asked for a voodoo sock monkey. Ok, I like that idea. I decided to send him some extras to go with it, an eyeball bottle cap pin cushion with shrinky dink pin heads of organs and such, funny!
Here is the thread for that. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340482.msg3947456#msg3947456
So here's the funny part, I can't for the life of me find a bottle cap, Anywhere! I don't want to buy a bottle of something (I don't drink out of plastic so it would get poured out and wasted plus I try to recycle whenever possible and a bottle cap seems like just that kind of item) but no one has a bottle of anything anywhere. I check recycling bins, I check people's cars, no luck. Finally I went over to the corner store to ask the clerk if she had one in her recycling but no luck there either! I told her what I was all about and she bought a drink and gave me the cap. Ha ha ha! It's worth gold this cap. I asked her what sort of crafts she liked and she said earrings, flowers, bright colours so here's what I made for her. Whew. What an adventure just to get a bottle cap for pin cushion for a trade for findings for another couple of swaps. How does life get this complicated anyhow?!
