at the dollar store i saw these little ship ear rings and i figured they were a buck so why not. i turned one into a pendent by looping the stud in the back. then it sat in my stash for a month or so untill i got the idea to make a polymer clay squid to sink it









the ear rings to match







this is a cheep cameo set that my Nana bought at a garage sale, it might have had lead in it it was this faded gold color so i painted it to look like turquoise.

after it was dry i sculpted the skull cameo into it

now i think it looks like something found on the bottom of the sea


theses are the ear rings to match

and finally my space ship


it started life as this weird large heart bead that i had in my stash
it looked black and i never really thought anything of it until i picked it up and noticed that it was actually a deep purple with flecks of tiny glitter and my Ludo CD switched to In space. and it hit me this should have a rocket on it

and here are the ear rings

Oh, what an awesome idea! That ship is going DOWN! That's really the perfect thing to do with some cheap jewelery, I'm going to have to see what I've got laying around...
