Description

Necklace length measures 16" Inches long with lobster clasp closure. I don't actually remember how many different thread colors I used in this one but I'm positive I used more than 30. The necklace also features a round wood and glass beads along with a 1.5" inch round wooden center circle.

Earrings measure 4" Inches long. The earrings also feature wooden beads along with metal charms. Surgical steel earring post.

Every piece used in the necklace and earrings have been recycled from odds and ends I've collected over the years. I also dedicate all my creativity to one set at a time making sure it's just right, not to mention each necklace usually takes me about a day to complete.

Embroidery thread necklaces and earrings can hold up almost forever as long as you make sure to keep them clean and dry them thoroughly if they get wet.

Description

Check out my new wrist cuffs! Unconsciously inspired by Rodarte (I didn't realize it until I had finished the second one), they are made with leftover pieces from other projects and include bits of yarn, thread, t-shirt cuts, and whatever else looks good. Each one is top stitched to high heaven, then backed with black cotton, and closes on the wrist with a button and elastic loop which have been securely sewn onto the cuff.

Made for a bigger ladies wrist or for a man's wrist, this cuff is about 8 inches long and 3 inches high at its widest part.

How fun is this!

Remember the magnetic letters we all had on the fridge when we were kids. This is the same, but only better.

They have a foam backing to help hold their shape along with a little magnet. There are not sharp edges.

The letters are about 1" high and 1" wide.

This week's scrap projects were of the random kind!! I had fun trashing my studio while I rummaged through all my shelves and bins looking for the perfect scraps to make a whimsical scarf with nonsensical design. This scarf is reversible with a fun vintage floral print on the reverse side. The scarf is a one of a kind unique accessory. It measures 4 1/2 inches wide which covers the neck so perfectly and is 74 inches long. Made with care and attention in a smoke free studio.

If there is a different color, style or length you would like...just send me a note!!!

Description

This is one of my favorite designs. I found this vintage brooch at an antique shop and was originally going to use multifaceted onyx beads for the strand, but found these painted glass beads among the collection I already had and decided they were perfect! The beads are painted glass featuring what look like blue daisies, and the design is augmented with some metallic accent beads. This is a truly one of a kind item! It is finished with a tarnished-looking metallic magnet clasp. The necklace is 21 inches long.

Description

Nobody knows the trouble I've seen;
Nobody knows my sorrow.
Nobody knows the trouble I've seen;
Glory, Hallelujah!

This down on his luck frog is made with 90% upcycled materials and comes with his own hobo stick that can come out of his hand.

The body is approximately 4 1/2" tall and 5" wide. And 16" long from head to toe.

Hobo Froggy is made to order. After you have purchased this listing I will begin making it just for you. Please allow one week for it to be finished.

Froggy does have plastic eyes and a stick so he is not recommended for very young children. All items are from a smoke-free, pet-free environment (unless you count Bubbles our fish).

Thank you for looking and buying handmade!
