I like to hold straight pins in my mouth.

First, the big cuff I made:

I took the pale pink flower from a pair of clip on earrings that my mom gave me. They were falling apart, so I helped it along.
I made a frame for the cuff and arranged my beads:


I made a big spiral to give it shape


Put on the flower


And covered it with beads





Next I made an interesting looking pendant/brooch out of a cameo my mom also gave me. It too, had seen better days.


Without the cameo -- which I'm using in another wire wrap project. It took a long time to get all the old glue off, then I scrubbed it with soap and a toothbrush and baking soda... it's not silver.


I polished the inside a bit more and drilled holes around it


I took the stones from this pair of clip on earrings (one shown)


And went to work:



To finish it off, I glued a piece of black felt and cardboard to the back, the black felt added lots of depth to the design.
Thanks for looking!!
