I have a whole new grouping of jewelry I can wear because
I am participating in Lisa Fulmer's book launch this week.
Craft your stash is a much needed reminder to start using what is already in my studio.
My whole studio is a STASH!! I could be under lock down for a decade and still keep crafting in here.
On Amazon I read this review from Margot Potter and thought "Yes, this is it." Time to stash bust.
Let me begin my sharing with you some of my crafty stash collections.
I LOVE these sew-on resin stones from Dazzle-it. This is stash ONE.
I turned the stones into beaded shapes for a blog post...and then never did anything with them.
It was time to do something. I gathered supplies from another site I write for which is Metal Complex.
Metal Complex has these glue on snap bases making anything you attach them to, easy to incorporate into other components. More on that shortly.
Stash two is my collection of felt balls.
I just love these. Some were hand felted, some purchased.
I cut a few of them in half!
Then I glued some more snap bases to them.
Stash three (of perhaps one thousand) are these vintage plastic brooches.
I gathered a few brooches and some metal buttons
(don't get me started on how many buttons I have)
and glued on the snap base.
Actually, I wonder how many buttons I have.....
So, just by gluing on the snap bases I managed to accumulate this whole
of DIY interchangeable jewelry components!
Wahoo! I think I am making progress here.
These are the Metal Complex KLIK components in my stash.....
As far as I am concerned, they are a blank canvas, just waiting for me to "KLIK" my DIY components into place.
So happy with my new pile of jewelry.
The best part is that I can mix and match to my hearts content.
