Recap of Creations

I guess you could call this post kind of a recap on jewelry I have made the last year. After my unfortunate experience a year ago, when the majority of my jewelry supplies were taken, I came close to not continuing with the hobby, However, I really enjoy creating new out of old and one of a kind, and had lots of encouragement from others.
And of course there is the thrill of the hunt for vintage/antique/old bits and pieces, and found objects to work with, such as one lone earring, broken pendant or broach, shoe clip, etc. etc..

After making the mosaic, I realized 2 pieces got left out.....
Recently posted about this one.....

A couple other pieces went out the door before they had their photo op.
Linking up @ "Show and Tell Friday"

"Share Your Cup Thursday"
"Vintage Inspiration"

Hope to get a bit caught up on some things around the abode this week. What ever your plans - have a great one!

Oh Glenda, you are so talented! I don't know the details of your materials being taken, but it must have been traumatic for you. I'm glad you continued with your work because it is so lovely.

I did not know that your supplies were taken. The same thing happened to my daughter years ago. Their home was broken into and they stole all of her jewelry making supplies. So glad that you didn't give up because you certainly have a special talent. Love your creations! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,
Jann
