(Note: these were scraps left over from making the big ol' arabesque tin earrings below. The shapes sorta chose themselves, though I did trim them down some.)
These 2 sets of earrings above are made of a tea tin sent to me by SalvageBeautyDesign before my trip to Uruguay. I actually blogged what she sent me with this picture:
I had a smaller pair similar to these and someone asked for another pair.
This pipe compass was actually given to me by my father in law. He found it in his junk drawer, I mean. It wasn't like a gift for me to keep. That would be rude.
A burrow from Uruguay. The copper pipe it's hanging on is from the recent surprise mail haul of 2 posts before and I already found a use!
And this is from the surprise mail haul before that. Or certain elements:t the black jet with weave carving, smaller white with weave carving, faceted white, teacup and charlotte.
I'm kinda super proud of the toggle. I connected a MOP stick that I think was from the mail haul SacredCake or Opulent Oddities sent. It is slightly loose so that it can move along the thinner middle part and hooks to the hammered copper link. Isn't it neat? It's making me so happy.
The Helots of Sparta.
The curved jasper was also from that haul before last. I know! I didn't think I'd incorporate them so soon. Also, missficklemedia sent me those mustard hoops. I'm so blessed.
And only 2 more classes before I'm free. Is there a name for a panic attack when it's not from fear but from happy anticipation? A freak out?
