Prince charming and downsizing
I love doing frog prince charmings...
They have to be ugly enough to make you hesitate to kiss them but have enough gold on their crown to be tempted. Is this your prince charming in disguise?
Besides the hand-painted pendant, this particular piece has many found or salvaged components. I'm enjoying combining my miniature paintings with bits and bobs from my collection of vintage costume jewelry to create one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. This is getting addictive.
I just added the Prince charming to my jewelry Etsy site along with the yellow and red piece with the African hand made and hand fired beads.
The bigger task is the CQ stash. I've decided that most of the CQ stash I am going to pack into bundles and have giveaways on the blog...a lot of them.... Just the threads, ribbons and lace alone are formidable. Have to decide the best way to bundle them... maybe do a couple bundles a week as long as it takes. I want to finish my spider bag this fall but the rest will all go. A good winter project. I am still in the process of moving all the jewelry making supplies into the two narrow white cabinets. The CQ stuff that was in them is now in big laundry baskets in the barn which I want gone, gone, gone. I also want the large black tool cabinet to be gone, gone, gone and once empty it should be pretty easy to sell.
