So, I'm totally in love with the look of all the brightly coloured enamel necklaces and earrings that are out there right now... but they're all SO out of my budget. Hello, like $40 for a necklace? Uh... no. That's sure not in my budget. But do you know what I DO have hanging around the house... a lot of them? Paint chips! So, a few paint chips, a little bit of resin and jewellery findings, and voila!

Here's the first one I've finished, I'm working on a few more and I'll post them when I get pics, but this one turned out really nice in a bit of a bunting style.

C&C Welcome!

I love to see projects that I feel are just too clever. This is one of them. I'd like purple and green please. :-) just kidding, nice work.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

That necklace is great. You would never guess it began life as paint chips.

Your paint chips look like enamel now, what a great job you did on this.
