I popped into the British Heart Foundation today and thought I would share with you what I bought.
First up I bought this necklace, look at all the lovely chain and that interesting arrangement of jump rings that all the beads are hanging off.
Look at all those lovely sparkly black crystals and that wonderful tassle. A bargain at £1.49!
Lots of gorgeous antique gold chain and only £1.99 for this one.
I have a large collection of chain sitting in a couple of glasses on my windowsill.
The necklace that I bought was the basis for the design. I added the copper focal and my own glass leaf headpins to finish it off.
I love upcycling jewellery and was one of the reasons I chose the name of my business 'Earthshine'.
Incidentally the mannequin I used in the photos above was bought from a QS (Quality Seconds). it was £6.99 which I thought was a bargain. It was a bit dark to go with my display so I sprayed it with some enamel spray paint to lighten it up. I think it works quite well don't you?
Thanks for looking.
