~i made something from stuff

swap box #2 arrived yesterday. what fun! this one was a shadow box swap where one sends it (in this case shipwreck dandy) out to another person who takes what they want, refills and mails it off again. and so it goes. then it came to me after i think 6 other people. what an interesting mix of components! so, i grabbed up a bunch of new yummies and threw in some goodies and it's off to the last person before it gets back to the original sender. its been fun.

so, i made this necklace completely from items in the box. ~polymer clay mermaid tail, shell buckle, faux pearls, assorted beads, apricot pit and a piece of metal.

have a lovely evening!

  1. Isn't it fun to get new components that you might not otherwise have a chance to pick up? It narrows down the possibilities and at the same time expands your options for designing. A nice challenge to make something completely from the swap items.
