Upcycled Jewelry


In A Treasury

A Treasury is a collection of someones favorite items that they put together and share with other members of Etsy. This Treasury was made by locustgrovelori, who makes the most interesting pieces using buttons and other objects. My favorites by her are the ones with a steampunk flavor. Take some time to look at her work. I'm sure there will be something that speaks to you.

Inland Wiz Cg Grinder

This is the new toy I'm getting tomorrow. The grinder I have now still works BUT the bit is frozen to the shaft. I've tried everything from WD40 to a hammer and still can't remove it. Its old anyway. This happened when we were going out vending and I was busy making pieces and not paying much attention to losening the grinding head when I wasn't using it.

I'll hang on to it just in case I start teaching a class or some strong man comes along and losens the head for me. Wish me luck.
