Make awesome jewelry out of household objects Answered

Picture of

If you want to make something cool for yourself, you can use some household items and your imagination to create some amazing things. Anni Albers did just that several decades ago and you can now get kits to recreate them. Or maybe just dig around in your drawers and see what you can make with what you already have.

Interesting, but I don't think I'll use it.

Very nice, and I recently saw a local shop carrying earrings made from Soda Pop, pop top rings. I have been trying to get back to that shop so I can duplicate the process for you all here, but it is a bit of a distance from my house.

I am working on it ;-) Right now, I am more worried about the condition of my back, and the pains I have suffered with the past 2+ weeks :-)

Well, I have had to kind of drag myself about when I had to go to doctors etc. and it is really a drag (slang) over all. I do have the neurosurgeon appointment tomorrow, so maybe things will start moving forward, soon.

Aaaaaaah I geddit. So if you said "tommorow" yesterday, tommorow is today, therefore the neurosurgeon's had a look at your back? Yay! And what's the verdict?

They canceled the appointment because the Doc was called into surgery *sigh*. Tomorrow (9/30) is my rescheduled time now :.-..(

Crap, I just made a comment on another post thinking the doctor called you into surgery. Oh well, I guess it's a day away so that's still not too bad. I wouldn't know but comforting words of denial always help.

I think it's cool, but it would be more interesting with small seed beads placed on the paper clips, or use varying sizes of paper clips.
