I spent this past weekend salvaging treasures ... from my own studio.
Didn't hit one flea market or estate sale.
Didn't have to.
I have a Gypsy's stash of treasure right here.
I'm starting to prepare for my jewelry class at "Art on the Farm" ... a Nada event.
That means pulling together an amazing class "kit" for each student ... I want everyone to feel as though they have just unearthed something magical to create with ....
I've harvested vintage and antique rhinestone clasps from piles of pearls ...... these are gorgeous, each one unique!
There is so much to sift thru ... many vintage jewelry boxes full of possibilities ....
Forgotten cigar boxes loaded with rhinestones to sort ... brooches, shoe clips, cameos, crystals, watch parts, souvenirs.
Interesting old keys ... just waiting for embellishment in their afterlife.
Organizing and compiling ...
I haven't even ventured up to the attic.
That's the place to gather antique tin types and photographs,
plus vintage millinery, scraps of lace, and ephemera ...
all to be fashioned into art ... made by YOU!
I am so looking forward to class and sharing this time together.
