Fun with BLING!

I first started collecting vintage earrings not more than 3 or 4 years ago. I came across a vendor at The Big Flea who had a shoebox full of odds and ends and was asking $1.00 for 20 pieces. At a nickle a piece, I am still astonished that I actually left some in the box. What was I thinking?

Recently, my friend Hillary, had asked me to make magnets from my stash of vintage bling to sell at Chicks Picks. I could visualize how cute they would be, but I wasn't ready to part with my cute jar full. (Looking at it brought me some sort of satisfaction???) Well, I found a new source, not a a nickle a pop, but still at a fairly good I got out the pliers and glue and went to town!

I got so much satisfaction, making them into sets and was very happy with the way they turned out. They will be available this week at the Chicks Picks sale!


  1. Very cute - I love the way you packaged them!!! It is hard to part with them , isn't it!!!

  2. These are great. You always amaze me with your talent for coming up with new ideas. Love, Sis
