I am a rather creative person, but mainly in the writing, clever gifting arena. However I am also the child of a rather creative mother, one who sews, crochet's, reupholsters, cans, gardens etc. After venturing out into blogland I've been even further inspired to see things a bit differently than I have before. I can now look at something that I would have never looked twice at and find a way to make it useful. So, back to my old jewelry.
The necklaces that I have been referring to looked similar to this:
And you can see here the noted two parts, only again, this is an example. The necklaces that I've been referring to had tarnished silver rings:
Here are photo's of the charms from the two necklaces:
|A beautiful butterfly|
|And a beautiful flower|
It just seemed so wrong that these lovely pieces of jewelry would go into the trash just because their cheap tarnished counterparts were kaput.
With that being said, there is another crucial element in this little story. It's a simple silver hair clip. One like this:
I came across a pack of silver clips that almost went right into my bathroom drawer until the creative bug hit me. I said to myself...hey self...I wonder... and just like that!
Isn't it super adorable!! Here is the other:
I must say, I am rather proud of myself. How do you think it looks?
My name is Tatum and I approve this message (...hair clip):
And even though I don't have a photo with the butterfly. Trust me, it's just as cute :-) I've received several compliments already!!
