Dig, sometimes archaeological, sometimes not

Organizing my craft space always produces old finds which can seem new, depending on how long it has been since I opened that box or drawer, ha.

While fluffing my crafty nest, I rediscovered some baubles and beads.


After some wire bending, thinking, bead mixing and thinking some more, I repurposed some old charms and treasured beads into a new sparkly.


I love the green peacock czech beads and freshwater pearls.



Digging more, I came across a strand of icy pale green jade I had been saving for a special project.
Yes, just like swatches of paper or fabric, I have beads that I like to pet and put back in the drawer.

Not today.

Today, I was bent (pun intended) to actually use what I love.


A repurposed cross, mother of pearl, czech glass, swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls later ~

Voila!  A new treasure to enjoy.

I have these pretties listed in my etsy shoppette.



Are you up for a challenge?


Today, tomorrow, this week - YOU decide

Take one favorite thing out of your stash - USE it, LOVE it, CELEBRATE it!

 

Leave a comment to let me know what you are pulling out of your bag of tricks and treasures.
I love to see what other people are making/doing/treasuring.
There is so much beauty out there - everyone has something special to share.
