Beaded and Fabric earrings
I used select scrap fabric to make the earrings so I can only make a couple pairs until the fabric runs out. I wanted to use found fabric to make each earring more unique.
The beaded earrings are silver, gold, and bronze plated delica beads that are made to order.
I recently visited the Alameda Point Antique fair and found the perfect solution for my present addiction with ancient cities, metal armor and the desert. I came across a different variety of metal pieces that will jumpstart my new collection.They give me the feeling of the hot desert and armor of soldiers, yet the rich color metals look like they belong on high class ancient women.
Here is a peek…
Most of these pieces are from the artist Marjorie Baer who is located in South San Francisco.
I particularly like her pieces because of their unique design of different color and size metal pieces.
She also tries to be environmentally friendly in the process of making the metal pieces, packaging, and limiting the amount of chemicals used. To learn more about what she does to reduce her waste check out this link. http://www.mbaer.com/environment.html
Here are some more vintage parts and pieces that I will use to develop the new collection

I went antiquing again and came across the most beautiful piece!
It is an old antique watch bob but it’s story has not yet been uncovered. The design is so detailed and rich in color that I could not keep my hands off of it.
Can’t wait to turn her into a necklace and her name will be Jimmy!
