Another Necklace Creation and Solar lights...

2 comments:
After making the broken china necklace for my mom,,, I got to thinking,,, hmmm why stop at one... after all, I have more broken chine pieces.
Here is necklace #2 made with another piece of the broken china...
I have this in my shop for sale...
 Speaking of my shop,,, here is the wall behind my counter... Audry Hepburn inspired.
I opened my little shop in late March,,, a little something to keep me busy through the summer.
 I have a bit of Western as well as ...vintage and collectables...
 Gary and I make "Solarliere's " using old lighting fixtures and solar lights...(and lots of spray paint).
we also make solar sconces....
I have a " solarliere" that I attach to my trailer so at night it is like having a blinged up porch light.

Here is my " solarliere".. Glamping in Ventura with one of my SOTF gal~pals.

A Necklace for My Mother.

6 comments:
This is my most current creation...
 using an old watch,,,, and removing the face and works....
 I inserted a small piece of Rosenthal china....
to create this necklace for my mother.

About 10 years ago she gave me her favorite Rosenthal china that she acquired in Germany in 1966.
Accidentally one of my kitties knocked several pieces off the display shelf in my hutch...
I used the broken pieces and mosaic a wooden photo frame with the pieces,,, but still had a few pieces left over and have been saving them for just the right project.
Now I will be able to re-share the china with mom...
Happy Mother's Day Mom.
