111  Yep. Yet another mirror. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: October 03, 2013 07:26:36 AM
Found a plate in a very pretty shade of green at Goodwill. Also found a string of shells and a string of beads, and the gold shell clip. I had the loose pearls and shells in my stash, and the big pearly piece at the bottom is from a gaudy necklace a sister gave me. I even found some wire plate hangers I'd had forever. Small round mirror from the candle section at Dollar Tree.

sheepblue, you've been a busy bee indeed! You make the neatest stuff.
Okay,yet another mirror completed. My favorite so far. Took forever!
Does a Goodwill plate as a base count as unusual materials?  Grin

115  Gold and black mirror-pic heavy in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: September 24, 2013 04:28:14 PM
Bought a red charger plate at Goodwill. Spraypainted it black, rubbed on some antique gold rub'n buff.  Enter a Dollar Tree hand mirror. Heated a knife in a candle flame,cut off the handle. Glued mirror in place. Wrapped a chunky necklace of black and clear beads around it. Took a second necklace, of pearl and black beads on gold, and added that to the top edge of the mirror. Took headpins, threaded on black faceted bead, small gold beads, pearl bead, and gold bugle bead, alternating the black and white every other pin I made. Glued them around the edges. Bow at the bottom is made from three old earrings. Filled in the area around the mirror with beads. Gold, black, pearl,clear, ect. Brushed on a couple of coats of sealer. I still have to attach a hanger to the back.
I freakin' love thrift stores. And all the people who give me unwanted jewelry.  Cheesy

So, I was just goofing around last night, and made this. I think this counts as unusual materials.^_^

117  Not a jewelry mirror! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: September 13, 2013 04:15:55 PM
I was playing around the other night,wondering what I could do with some big pieces of circuit board my nephew gave me. And did this. A mirror that goes under a candle, a locker mirror, two halves of a compact. A little copper tape. The plain side on the back was still a little scratchy,as circuit board is,and I was wondering how to hang it,and not have it right against the wall. I took a round plastic wall clock from the Goodwill,and E600'd it to the back. The clock was broken, so the little plastic gears from it were added to the front of the board. I spray painted the hodgepodge that was the back black,then sprayed on sealer.
Just experimenting,messing around.

Small project, made some bangles for fun.
And yes, the hearts are nifty! I can see giving one to someone to carry in their pocket,and they'd always have a hug from you.
