New for Tuesday...

A while ago I made up several of these large glass ruffle flower style focals. I wasn't sure if I was going to list them to sell as a set or as a focal maybe with a couple of spacers or if I was going to use them. I finally decided to use a few of them...




I love this brown. It's a transparent brown glass so even though it looks dark, when the light hits it it sparkles and seems to get this amber glow along the edges...


For the necklace below I had these plastic rings in my sewing stash. They almost look like shower curtain rings but a little smaller and with no opening. I remember buying them in the quilting section of the craft store but I don't remember why or what they would be used for. After making the fabric wrapped bangles  I decided to wrap these hoops in some vintage fabric and add links and work them into some of my pieces...



I have more of the ruffle flower focals piling up...they're so much fun to make. I'm still not sure how I want to sell them so I think I'll do a few in sets, a few singles and make up some extras for me to keep using in my jewelry. I'll let you know when I have some available up in the shop. Now I'm off to get these goodies listed in my Etsy Shop

Have a great day!

Very pretty Marianne, neat idea on how you used the rings.
