Sometimes, as artists, we get an idea of something we want to create, but can’t find the supplies to make it like we want to.
That happened to me about a year ago. I had this really unique idea show up about painting a meadow type scene with a fence and adding western jewelry to it.
Guess who couldn’t find any western jewelry?
I looked online and I didn’t find anything. So, that idea got put on hold…
Last week I finally found what I needed!
Originally, I had been thinking ‘pendants and brooches’, but what I got was something I hadn’t ever considered:
Look at these:
They’re actually pretty amazing because they are flat on the back, which is great for gluing.
They were on sale!! Love that!
I’ve talked about this Etsy shop before, but if you’re new and/or just starting jewelry art, I thought I’d mention it again. I’ve gotten a lot of my jewelry supplies there for the past couple years.
It’s called Ancillary Potpourri and a sweet gal named Linda owns it. She has all sorts of beads, brooches, necklaces, and more with nice pricing. An artist herself, she offers some pretty cool pieces that can be made into all kinds of stuff.
The link is https://www.etsy.com/shop/AncillaryPotpourri if you’d like to look. There’s no compensation for me in sharing this whatsoever. I’m just sharing in case you’d like to see where I get some of my supplies.
I also got a few other things:
And, look!! Bowling pins!
I’ve never been on a bowling team before and my husband asked me to be on his team. We start September 6!
Think I should wear these pins????
I’m excited to finally be able to make the western piece I’ve had on hold for so long. Plus, with the other jewelry I got, I think I’m going to try a mermaid.
Love when outside-the-box creativity comes together somehow, don’t you?
Thanks for being here!
