This time it's a vanity mirror and two compacts.
I bought the red and silver vanity mirror at the thrift store. The mirror itself swivels in the  frame,each side is  a different magnification. One side of the frame is covered with small beads. A tiny piece left from a pearly necklace I'd used on another project around the 'neck', a string of red beads around the base. And on the frame, six crystal drops that had been in my jewelry stash forever! They originally adorned a huge,gaudy pair of earrings. Brushed some clear sealer over the beading, and the red glass.

You can't tell from this,but the drops have a nice iridescent sheen.

A little fuzzy,but you get the idea.Larger rhinestones on the middle at each side,and left plain on the back.

The base.

And the two compacts.

An earring,some chain,rhinestones,silver and clear glitter beads, and clear jewelry sealer on the black one. A green heart brooch,paint, gold glitter beads and a few larger beads, and more sealer on the gray one. Mirrored compacts 1.00 each from Dollar Tree, everything else from stash.

lol you are becoming a mirror queen!

What a clever idea to dress up plain compacts!  Already made up ones are pricey and not as interesting...

Love!

Thanks, always! Yep, I'm going to be sooo sick of mirrors-I still have at least five more to finish.  I really need to take a break and work on something different in between.  Cheesy
