Goodie Bag Arrived from Rings and Things!!!!

I love surprises, especially when it comes in the form of "anything" I can make jewelry out of!  Today, I received my goodie bag from Rings and Things from their March drawing..

 I've been watching the mailbox for a week now.........


 and it finally came today!

After ripping the package open because my scissors weren't where they were suppose to be (am I the only one who can never find scissors in the house when you need them), I was tickled pink to find some pretty cool things I can play around with, give away and review.  I've just been looking at them this evening, trying to think up something fun but I just had to share what was inside...

For starters there were some pretty cool wood charm filligree pendants.  They are very light, and I can definitely see them in a summer design. Something light and airey. 


Next up, were these gorgeous antiqued copper plated findings... and look another button for me to play with! The apple blossom button is a little too cute, and the toggle is beautiful. With the price of silver these days, I may have to consider a few alternative metals for a while, and I'm kinda liking these.


These were cute too, I love the copper pearled accent bead on these french hook earrings. The metal is black/antiqued copper plate..another interesting find.  The wire is pretty hard, definitely not flimsy.  Another great alternative for cutting prices right now or for some great budget priced earrings... 


And last but not least...my favorites are these strawberry glass beads!  Okay, so they probably will never make it to my shop window, BUT won't they be fun to wear this summer.  They'd make a cute pair of whimsical earrings or go great in a bracelet or necklace. 



So, right brain-left brain will have to started thinking of something to do with these goodies. I haven't decided yet, just which pieces I'll be keeping to make something nifty out of, but once I do, you'll be the first to know and what I don't keep, I'll be sharing with you!

Good morning, Dee, I'm so glad you liked this selection and have interesting comments about the goodies already. I agree that it's really nice to have some alternatives to silver & gold available when the metals prices are going sky-high!

Wishing you lots of happy jewelry making :)
