My first meeting w/ the group was Thursday night & I cannot tell you what fun I had. It was exactly the way I picture Silver Bella being.... only on a smaller scale, of course & we all worked on different projects. Charlene gave mini-tuts to Pat & Carolyn on soldering jewelry charms; Rochelle, worked on crocheting a scarf; JoAnn made glittered altered spoons (adorable!); Jana played hostess, serving us a wonderful chicken noodle soup & then she made some darling pumpkins out of chenille; Lisa worked on a shadow box of her own & what did I do? I made this.....
out of this!
This little brass & glass boz was a recent thrift find & as soon as I laid eyes on it, I knew how I would transform it. I ripped out the old contents & rebuilt it w/ a little girl-witch (complete w/ broom) a glittered skull, spider webs & spider & then I backed it all w/ a piece of sheet music. You can see in the first pic above, that I also wrapped it w/ some polka dotted ribbon. The "black glob" you see at the witches feet is a couple of little black flowers that don't show up well in the pic.
Spooky...but in a sweet way, don't you think?
Her "brooch" is actually the clasp off the pearl necklace I used for the broom handle. The pearls had come unstrung, I'm never gonna restring them so I put the clasp to use.
