Sample Necklaces for Workshop

This week I made a few necklaces to use as samples for my found object necklace workshop in a couple weeks.
For the one above I used a watch face, broken earrings, mini bottle, frozen charlotte and various beads and baubles.
The necklace above has a bit more bling with some pearls and crystals. I love mixing objects together for a fun and interesting piece to wear.
My last piece is a black and white necklace. I purchased this brooch from craft depot, it's unusual to find a brooch with black and rhinestones together.

Now to share my Friday purchases...I can't get enough of the French General line. I was at Scrapbook Territory this afternoon and I had to pick up more items. They've totally re-stocked their supply of French General items.
Some of their items are too cute to use...I just want to look at them in the package!
Then Amy Tam has a cute line of scrapbook items out. I love this book below...I think I'll use if for journaling our spring break next week.
And last, I just wanted to show you my daughter's latest creation made from polymer clay...a bento box with noodles, egg, lettuce and a Rilakkuma face. It's like an inch wide and 3/4" cute!
Happy Spring!
