Recently I stumbled on one of the loveliest vintage charms I've ever seen: minute, sterling, filligree scissors that are articulated so that they move. What's more they're around seventy years old. Vintage pixie scissors.
By chance I was commissioned to make a tiny silver cotton reel to be delivered today. They're tricky to make and can easily turn out rather ungainly but this morning, thank goodness, all worked out well.
I saw a tiny silver marriage made in heaven so I made an extra silver cotton reel and raided the vintage mother of pearl button stash.
The result is a sewing necklace and it's in my etsy shop.
Speaking of which, whilst the Mr and I were staying in our tiny cottage on Monday my little gumball necklace made it to the front page of etsy!
Dances were danced, let me tell you.
That's what's going on in my Creative Space. See more inspirational makes here.
Edited to add: I'm still quite new to making treasuries but I picked some beautiful making kit from the pages of etsy to make a treasury- do pop over to have a peep - all feedback is very welcome.
