For my birthday my dad bought me 20 pounds of junk jewelry from a flea market and since then I've been picking through it, taking old stuff apart, and creating new stuff with it!
I bought the camera and beetle charm at a local bead shop but pretty much everything else came from really old junk jewelry.  I love to hear what you guys think! :)

My dad is super awesome! I've been making jewelry for awhile now, and when he saw the boxes full of junk... he just knew I had to have it!!  This is my daughter and I right after I opened the boxes, I was showing off a crazy earring!

My mom bought me a paper box filled with garage sale jewelry and stupidly I didn't think about tearing everything apart. *facepalm* Your stuff is awesome! Smiley

Your dad is definitely "seriously awesome"! Twenty pounds of flea market goodness!

I especially love the green necklace with the gold leaves, so classy.

So. How about you and your dad ship some here for me. I'll pay you for the box. Cheesy

Haven't managed to find anything like that here. I guess I'm not looking hard enough.

PS. Pieces are gorgeous. Loved what you did with them  Grin
