Found Objects

I hit the road today for a little treasure hunting...made a few stops at some antique shops that I have not visited in a long time. I have been working on lots of "found object" pieces lately and was on the hunt for some more treasures, you know you can NEVER have enough!  Here is the little pile of goodies I came home with today.
Steel chain, old watch housings, watch fob chain, #1 tag and a cool old key
I see something with resin for the watch housings and the rest who knows just yet...

While I was shopping at The Rare Bird  I met this really nice and helpful lady...she knew just what I was looking for, most of the things came from her showcase. Lisa had the nicest booth, our tastes were so similar. Well, it turned out she is also a cool is that! Lisa's blog is called "Out Junking" be sure to check it out here.

Here are a few of my latest Found Object pieces.

You can find these in my Etsy shop.

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Looks like you got some great finds and you did a great job of "recreating" them.

  6. Very cool finds, Judy! Love the key!

  7. Hi Judy! I always love the way you put together vintage pieces into jewelry. The shape of that key is extra special and looks wonderful with the large round chain.

  8. Love the steel cut buckle.
    I purchased some awesome buckles at the Bead and Button show and can't wait to create with them. I'm always in awe of the painstaking riveting in these little gems.
