~Bookmarks and Altered key~

Hello friends, I hope everyone out there is getting to enjoy some spring time weather. Well, some of you live in Australia-I guess it isn't spring there, is it? I thought I would share a couple things I made yesterday. Some easy-peasy bookmarks. That are washable! How about that? Well, you probably should remove the button first. But that's easy to do. I love birds.

I made a necklace out of this key, an earring, some pearls and rhinestones.

I soldered the earring onto the key for extra support. I won't do it again, I'll tell you. :) What a pain! I have to say, I really have respect and admiration for jewellers. What a skill.

I hope your weekend is pleasant and that you do something that you love. What ARE you doing? I would love to hear from you.

Praying for you, dear friends, for your health and peace in the Lord.

God bless,

Hi Sonya, I adore those little birdie bookmarks. So sweet! And that necklace is divine. I couldn't even begin to imagine what soldering entails. Take care and have a great rest of the weekend. We are back to school tomorrow. :/ Best wishes, Tammy

Hi Sonya, Thanks for sharing your creations; they are all so lovely! Are these images printed on your computer? It is great that they are washable. I have also been looking for a permanent washable ink pad for fabric; don't know if they make it. Have you tried the jewelry glue which is supposed glue metal to metal? I've added some things to a few pieces of vintage jewelry but I have not glued anything together yet :).
I am a friend of Cindy's too. She is so loving and kind. I may have met you through her :)
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog.
Enjoy your Sunday!
~ Julie
