Hello and Happy Friday Friends! It's a beautiful day in the northwoods with the sun shining on the bay. And it looks to be a promising weekend too! Before I go run errands I wanted to share more about the key jewelry I've been working on and show you some of them.
I found a bag of old hotel keys (remember the days when you actually had to carry around a big key??) and I cleaned them up knowing I wanted to upcycle them in some way. I started playing around with some paper crafting materials, lace, fabric etc that I had lying around.
And using some modgepodge and some jewelry glue - I went to my creative happy place and several necklaces have now emerged. ;) I liked doing layering of different kinds of materials on top of each other. A lace backdrop with a paper crafting word. Bits of fabric with bird stickers in front. Whatever seemed to work with the materials I was choosing at the time. I love that when creating something new there is no right or wrong - just doing and imagination. I attached some different colors of cording to make them a necklace and voila. Here are some that I'd like to show you.
I love how this one looks like the little yellow bird and flowers on the left are in front of a forest made from lace.
Here are more I'd like to share. These next few seem especially Spring-like and Summer-like to me.
You can never go wrong with polka dots and flowers, right??
Little chickadee over some fabric.
Pretty as a summer wish.
