I had so much fun making this necklace. I'm so glad I discovered the art of jewelry making. It's my therapy.

Iron scrolled container, $3.00. I bought a good smellin' candle, $1.00, at Goodwill also to put in it, but then it broke when something fell on top of the bag on the ride home... Oh well, I used it anyway.
I thought this frame was really pretty. I may paint it or maybe just leave it gold. What do you think? I bought some material to embroidery something to put in the frame. I haven't embroidered in many, many years so we'll see how that goes. Frame, $1.00.

I've been spending a lot of time on the computer looking at blogs and there are so many creative women out there... I'm so inspired! In fact, I stayed up till 1:30 this morning and made three necklaces with vintage jewelry. I LOVE them all!! Of course, my camera battery is dead so no pictures today. I'll post some soon...
Also, today, while killing time in town waiting on my girls I visited an antique mall. It's been awhile since I've been in so I decided to go see if I could find some vintage jewelry goodies to use in my new necklaces. I found a few things that I might buy later. I started talking to the guy working there and inquired about booth costs. I told him I made jewelry and it just so happens that they had an empty jewelry display at the front of the store right beside the cash register for $30. a month!!!! It was a sign from the heavens!! No contracts and the store takes 5% which covers taxes and credit card fees. I took the guys card to think about it overnight... well.. I've thought about it and I'm SO going back tomorrow and reserving it! I may even put some things in it tomorrow!!! I'm so excited... I may not be able to sleep tonight...
