Jewelry-lover’s Heaven

I felt like a kid in a candy store yesterday! Many of my co-workers know that I make jewelry – some have even bought a thing or two. So Stacy in Sales decided to present me with a challenge. After her late grandmother’s things were picked over by the family, she ended up with a lot of “junk” costume jewelry, much of it broken and unwearable. So, knowing that I often make new jewelry out of old, she asked me if I would try to make something out of the lot for her and several members of her family. Of course I said yes.

And these are just the rejects!

Yesterday she brought me a jewelry box and a bag full of the old jewelry – imagine my excitement! When I got home, I went through it all – feeling like a little girl playing with her mother’s jewelry. Sure enough, most of it is junk, but I was able to pick out quite a few things that have potential to be turned into something new.

Of course it will all need a good cleaning, then I’ll see what I can come up with. I’ll be sure to blog about the results.
