Charmed....

Trash or treasure? if you're like me you will have a stash of best bits that you don't want to use but just sit in their little boxes never seeing the light of day....so here's some of my stash.I'm working on a class for EfemeraInk and we'll be making jewellery. See the white plastic ruler at the top of the picture? (from the £ shop)




Well with a hacksaw and a few Promarkers you can make fabulous charms for your necklace or bracelet....or to put in a configuration box. The wooden charm is just a chunk of wooden ruler with a small charm glued on...




Hang on to all your broken bits of jewellery and odd buttons and recycle them.It's amazing what you can do with junk and a bit of Diamond Glaze.







There's a few different charms in the pipeline so I'll post them when they're done... along with the finished necklace.

Brilliant idea Effie and very now but I'm not sure I can bring myself to use those 'special' little treasures hiding at the back of the drawer!!
