1  bag bling in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by DeepSeaPurl on: October 10, 2010 01:55:05 PM
Long-time lurker (and admirer of y'all's work), finally de-lurking to show something I made for a new bag.  I thought about putting this in bags, but I guess it really is more of a trinket.

I just got this bag, which has the right size and organization for what I need, but it needs a little sumthin-sumthin, ya know?  (and interestingly enough, this designer usually has WAY too much bling for my taste)



I was inspired by this site to make a bag charm (scroll down):

So I set about making a little bling for it, to the style of vintage (got most findings at Michael's and Joann - Michael's in particular has a great new line of "handmade found" findings, I threw the labels away already but you can't miss them):



Closer?  Ok:



I particularly wanted a working watch on it, so I wouldn't have to keep pulling me phone out to check the time (especially when traveling in airports, I keep dropping my phone).  Here's a real close-up of just the bag charms:



I can post pics of the individual findings later (this post is getting pic chubby), but they're super cool - the little boxes open, and the lantern style opened so I put some tiny beads in there.  Enjoy!   Cheesy
