Valentine Window Charms

Another wintery day, softly snowing outside... Great time to go in my studio and make something.... working on these adorable Valentine window charms.

I have been experimenting with copper, pewter,  stamped words and solder.  I have made the head pins holding the crystal with copper wire and lamp working.  Think I will include some of these with my Swap & Hop goodies.  Can't wait to see who I will get for a partner !!

Burlap jewelry display board

I am in LOVE with burlap... here is a tutorial on how to make a display board.
I had some  bulletin boards lying around and then found some more at the

paint the frame

use glue gun to attach the burlap

just add jewelry !!

  Women's Shelter thrift store and I  did see some at the dollar store.. this is so easy.
  I used the plain side of the board..the cork side is still useable ....e-mail me if you have any questions.

January is almost half over... Have been trying to clean up my studio so that I can post  some pictures of it when it is looking reasonably tidy !!
I've also been web surfing looking at different set ups for taking photos.. After countless configurations  I think I have finally come up with one that I am super pleased with...  Now to find a big piece of very white paper to use as a background.
Found a part of my tri-pod that I forgot I had. A little piece that screws on the bottle of the camera and then just clips onto the tri-pod... LOL   which makes it easier to install & uninstall the camera !! My son had put another piece on the camera when he was taking photography (many years ago) & when he was out this summer I gave it back to him as he is now into photography again. 
This piece makes it so much easier to take pics.
The colour in this pendant is very true to life !!
