So we'll see how motivated I am with this project. I have completed one set of earrings so far... And I have plans plans plans!
I googled something like "how to make jewelry with recycled stuff" and found a fantastic crafty blog. http://www.leethal.net/ It's this cool Portland chicky named Lee, and she has many projects...but I really loved her ideas about making earrings out of old sweaters. Yippee! Just the kind of inspiration I was looking for. Some of my beloved sweaters have been attacked by the woolie woolie monster. But they can be transformed, re-made, made anew! We all can. Hooray! Here's a pic of my first pair of earrings:
This picture is indeed blurry- it's not your eyes!
These lil' leaves were on a big clunky broken necklace. I removed them and made them into some cute nature-inspired earrings. Oooh...ahhh... yay! ; )
