here are some of my newer shiny happy creations. I apologise for the horrible photos in advance.

this looong necklace is probably my ultimate favourite, ever. how I love it so. made from black faceted glass beads and a whole bunch of crazy bracelets they had for cheap at Micheal's, disassembled.

crappy close-up.

this necklace is another one of my absolute favourites. an ornate key, with mini (functional!) handcuffs attached, on a chain with black ribbon woven into it.

this necklace speaks for itself. it's so freakin cool. I love it. random chains, beads and charms harvested from various pieces of jewelry. behold my frankenstein.

a necklace made from a lonely vintage earring and a random chain. with a dangly bead, just for fun.

these were thrifted earrings, they were essentially the same except instead of the cool splattery gray beads, there were bright orange ones.. ick. I replaced all the orange with the gray, left the black beads alone, and made the bottom part longer.

I personally wouldn't wear these, but they're kinda cute, right? these began their lives as huge vintage heart studs. I made holes and added the bottom part.

this photo is horrible too.. these were originally hanging off a necklace, I just took them off, attached them and re-positioned the beads. the white ones are actually faceted and look pretty cool, and the pearls are just pearls (not real ones of course).

these are just random. the huge pink charms were on a kid's hairtie, but I thought they were too cool to rot in a thrift store, so earrings they shall be!

these are also made from thrifted earrings, originally they were just the stud parts. it was kinda challenging, but I figured out a way to make the beads and the chains hang right. the earrings came with a larger but identical pin.

I'm not sure if I've posted these before, so just in case, I'll do it now. all of the buttons are checkered, some are just flipped over.

these started out as a completely different pair of earrings, with three rings of decreasing size hanging inside each other. I took them apart and connected the 2 smaller circles, and used wire and beads to change them to something more my style. the only downside is they're heavy. but hey, the price we pay for fashion...

last but not least, I've had this dried flower pendant forever and never knew what to do with it. so I just put it on some hemp and added a few complementary beads.

what do you guys think?  Smiley

i LOVE the black heart studs. Where did you get the black and white rhinestone chain? (I think that's what it is...) I'd love to get my hands on some of that.

bridges and houses are learning to fly secretly so we won't know why. and good for them!

thirteenleafclover, the rhinestone chain was part of a pair of earrings that I'd never think of wearing... I think they were from Claire's. sorry I couldn't be of more help  Undecided

Wow, very cool! I love stars/hearts and anything black and white.  Eventually I have to post some of my work up here, when time permits.
