All that Glitters

Yesterday morning I woke up to the good news that I had won a drawing to take this class for free. I was so excited because A.) I have loved Andrea's style and jewelery for years and B.) I have been stock piling vintage jewelery bits and pieces for years with the idea that I would some day use them.

Well a lot of some days have passed and I really haven't used any. I have however, continued to collect.  I think the day to start making has finally arrived!

If you have hoarded collected like I have then you may want to join along with this class. It's well worth the $10 to turn some of that stash into something usable.

I even found a stash of stuff I bought several years ago from French General that is just waiting to become something amazing.

 I can't wait to do something special with this colorful flower piece.

And just when I thought that was it, I found this teacup filled with glittery pins.

Let the fun begin!


  1. How fun to take a jewelry class.

    Just last week I took out a tin box from French General I received years ago. I don't know what I was waiting for, so I finally used some of the fun beads.

    French General is close enough for me to take a class (1 hour drive) and now that I am retired I think I will.

    Have fun in your class.

  2. Lucky you! I am so excited for this class, too. I will be sitting right beside you with my collection of jewels! Can't wait to see what you come up with.
