These are great! I of course have a special fondness for the lightbulb necklace, since I was around when you bought the supplies.  Grin

I love how your transformed junk into beauty.

I love what you've created! The way you put all the different elements together, I like how the book pages look with these. Rusty bits are some of my favorite things.  The 'no plan, a pile of random crap and e600' is just what I do, too. And yes, to walking around auto part places. I used to walk around the car repair place's parking lot on my lunch break every day, and come back with another bit of metal in my pockets.
Alteredmommy, I have a collection of rusty flattened bottlecaps, too. One of these days I'll figure a project out. Cheesy
Anyway, I love the necklaces! You are so very creative. I need to go hit 'this rocks' now.

Whoa.  They're all compelling but I like the maimed doll the best.  You'll be pleased to learn that some of the parts that are probably going into your swap piece from me were found on the ground.  But they aren't junk!  They're "supplies."   Roll Eyes
