Dipping into the Sea...........Glass, again!

Hello Wonderful Friends!

I've heard your polite requests, and I am looking forward to getting my hands all covered in paint again!  I hope to have new art here very soon....

But, just so you know I haven't been putting the paint aside for nothing, I've finished up another round of experiment projects using my beloved sea glass collection again.

I've put gorgeous, rounded and smooth pieces on bobby pins, for the first time...

....and love how this showcases the beauty of a single piece.
...and then I tried using the tiniest bits I have, and made earrings!  Placed in the bezel with a pair of tweezers and patience....haha!
Together, the little chips make such a pretty mosaic.  These bezels are just 3/4 of an inch (2 cm) in diameter just to give you an idea how many pieces are in there.
Nothing going to waste here!
As with all these whims I get, I just made a few.....only 4 pairs.  I like to try things, then move on to the next.  Keeps things fresh and exciting for me and the items unique.  I like to think, anyways....haha!  They are in the Shop now :)
So, I am very ready to get some paint slinging to mix things up again :P
For all you sewing girls...and Vintage fans, I wanted to share this with you.
Do you know what it is?
The pins on top are a clue.
Isn't it adorable?! 
A wee pin cushion sheath houses small sewing shears for trimming threads and whatnot. 
It belonged to my Japanese Grandmother and is about 50 years old.  I think it is just fantastic.
Just listed it in the Vintage Shop today.
Can't believe the weekend is here again...the year already seems to be going so quickly.  Hope your days are filled with all your favorite things!
Hugs all around,

Oh how lovely, Cam! I have never seen such small pieces of sea glass - it makes them quite perfect for mosaics. And I love the little pincushion - so sweet. Happy March to you!

Its the MerMaid in you creative♥ that keeps drawing you back....I am so happy you listen. Everyday I use my seaglass barrett and zipoff to a more magical place...truly I do...
Isnt that the most fasinating sewing would keep snopers away better than knitting needles...♥Debi

Those teeny tiny sea glass workings are so cute! Yet again - it makes me wish I dressed my hair up a bit more... or that I hadn't let my pierced ears close up.

That little pin cushion is such fun - is there any end to your creativity?
