a new hobby!

August 6, 2008


Aha! I have discovered that at my favorite antique store (just around the corner), you can purchase a three-dollar jar of broken/misfit/mismatched/damaged jewelry bits & pieces. So, that is exactly what I did a few days back. And, with the help of wire cutters, pliers, and a soldering iron (Mark had a brief phase of circuit-bending for fun), I am making the old newly designed! The fun of the jar is that it is such a crap-shoot (or as Mark says, “like a pack of baseball cards–you never know if you are going to get treasure or trash”)!! I’m having fun, I’ll post my creations as they come along!

    we did something very similar to that in my jewelry classes in a seminar-type-thing called “Radical Jewelry Makeover” :

    I’m excited that you’re into that, too. 🙂

    Thanks, guys.
    The websites are awesome (considering I’m no metal-smith, and am blundering through this as per usual).
    It’s fun though!!
