Etsy Inspired #132 - Fresh Metal Jewelry

Saturday, March 26, 2011


Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to another fun-filled Etsy Inspired Challenge.

Our featured shop this week is:

This shop is full of vintage necklaces and brooches that are made of eye catching fabric.

I actually made a LAYOUT for my inspiration piece this week. The photo is an old one of Rachel & her friends when they were in Brownies together. (She is on the far right). I was inspired by all of the blue, teal, and turquoise flowered jewelry pictured on this post. 


I'm a teacher and have so much used notebook paper lying around at home and at school. I also love to recycle. Instead of throwing a piece of old notebook paper away I actually used it on my layout.

I am also linking this up at Frosted Designs for their Fabulous Friday Challenge!

The title "Friends" is actually made of Real Wood and it's made by K & Company. I also added small green pearls from Prima to the cirlces in the page. I used a fabric flower on my layout that was inspired by this shop. You can see it here.

Here is another pretty from Fresh Metal Jewelry.

For some reason, there is no layout for me to see! I've tried refreshing the page and closing the window and starting again... I suppose this is an excuse to come back to visit another time (which I would have anyway!!).

I'm so glad I came back. I can see the layout now. I'm not sure what happened yesterday...
This page is a treasure, Angi! The colours are wonderful and I love those little green pearls. But my favourite part (other than the wonderful photo, of course) is the strip of notebook paper. That just looks fabulous! I just love the way you are able to put things together in your creations.
