A Pin for Tim!


This is a bit of a departure for me.  Everyone in paper crafting seems to be dipping their toe in the jewelry pond! 

I wasn’t really interested in this area until my nephew looked around my craft room and asked if there was anything in there I could use to make a lapel pin.  He is a dancer and finds that a lapel pin brings a person’s eyes up to his face so they make contact and he can get a conversation going with the powers in charge when he is auditioning, which makes him a little more memorable in their mind.   So we set to work with what I had in my stash…

Now I have found a much better pin back than the old-fashioned bar-type that I’d had in a box for heaven knows how many years, better bonding agents and my eye wanders to a lot of things “jewelry” these days.  I even have the makings of another pin for my nephew and his birthday is right around the corner.

You may be seeing more of this kind of thing from me…

Let me hear from you…  you know I love it!!  Blessings and fond Hugs to all!!

    You are so creative. Love your ideas, I’m happy to see that you are expanding into jewelry. I like your pin for Tim. Jo

    • It was done to please Tim because I’ve always avoided jewelry making… it is my sister Megan’s speciality. Now, though, I start to see things I might like to do, especially the Steampunk and some of the less structured types still using much of what we use in the paper crafting world. I may have another example by the end of the year!

  2. Wow Sis, this is so cool! Thanks for making this wonderful creation for Timmy. I love it! 🙂

  3. I’ll have another in the near future. I have already named it “Timothy in Wonderland”. You’ll like the next one, too, sis!!
