My friend Sarah over at Pookledo invited me to join her Thrift Store Blog Hop whilst I waited for my Bead Soup to arrive. It sounded so challenging, I just had to have a go! The idea is to purchase an item from a charity shop for £1 ($1.50) and turn it into jewellery. Well I'm all for mixed media and upcycling but I fell for this poor little broken necklace. It only cost 50 pence. What a bargain!
Now I just have to make it into something else..... wish me luck!
Here is a list of the other participants in this Blog Hop. Please pay them a visit to see their Thrift Store Pieces.
