Micro mosaics.

Today has brought a fondness for vintage micro mosaics.

I feel a new collection coming on.

I found some buttons at a local flea market this past weekend. I'm thinking about some ways to use them in jewelry, or maybe a stitching.

Would you agree that people who like beads are often fond of buttons as well?

Jewelry display.

Long ago I had an idea for a way to display some my jewelry with a printer's drawer because my jewelry armoire was close to overflowing. Then I got lazy and did nothing about it. Sometimes I would look at the drawers in antique shops, but I didn't want to spend $25 or more.

When I went to the Elkhorn Flea last month, I found this drawer and made an offer of $5. Sold!

I bought $8 worth of eye hooks at the hardware store. I had a hard time putting the eye hooks in, so I asked Mark for ideas on how make my dream a reality more easily. The next thing I knew he was working on my project for me. He's pretty fantastic.

This entire project cost $13. Because almost all of the jewelry in it is vintage or handmade, it looks like a piece of art.

Cameo ring.

A recent acquisition from 6 Shadows Jewelry.

I love cameos. Sigh.
