Here is what I made so far out of the most wonderful colored stone chips. I love all of it. So much that I have to get some more. Colors are wonderful! Cheesy

My sister said I should do more of these and sell them as they are a bit different from the usual jewelry. But I don't know about that.

Also, Phizzychick gave me a good idea what to use the stones for in another jewelry project. I have to get some more, but that shouldn't be too difficult. Looking forward to trying it out ^^

What do you think? Comments and critique welcome!

I love the way the stones are set on the necklace with the eye pins. great Idea. I've never seen stone chips like that other than gemstone chips. Very pretty. They are a bit bohemian a bit hippeyish. You should try to sell them.

Simply gorgeous!  I love the colors.  Reminds me of happiness and candy (which is happiness to me).  I would totally buy them in a shop.

Thanks guys!

The jewelry stands are made out of pretty light scrap wood (I'm guessing pine). They are actually sculptures my bf's grandfather made.

Ha, good to know I have some good ideas occasionally! Cheesy I They're so lovely and bright and sunny looking, and the colour combination you've used works really well.
