Actually, most of the materials here are recycled from other older pieces. The colorful black beads were once a bracelet given to me by my mother-in-law, acquired on a recent trip to Italy. I had worn it so much that it fell apart! The big gold owls also from another piece I wore-out when in college, the gold beads from one of those popular bead necklaces we all wore in the mid-80's.
The matching earring are next, then a few more wire wrap projects like this one to use up those eBay beads... then I'm taking a stringing class!
I'm sure I'll have more shiny stuff to show you soon!
Who wants to come play with me!?
