I'm just intrigued with the found object jewelry. I like the idea of turning junk into treasures. I am going to call my new "line" (heehee) "Jonque A Tresor". That is "junk to treasure" in French. Don't you love that? Anyway, this is my first finished piece. I called it "Key to My Heart". This pic is not the greatest. You just gotta see it in person. I can't decide if I will list it on Etsy or try and get a bunch made and take to an Art show/fair or something. I also love my packaging. It was suggested by a friend to use tin boxes to keep with the rustic look. I did not want to spend a lot of time rusting tin boxes and preparing them so I purchased some at Michaels. You know the little gift card tins? Then, I sewed a little quilted padding out of vintage looking material for the box. I made some little cards with the "Jonque A Tresor" label.
Here is a pick of the packaging-also not a great pic. I need a better camera that takes nice close ups. My little Kodak easy share just does not do close ups. Sigh.
Cody finally called us Saturday night. It was very brief and sounded like he was reading from a script. He gave his address and was very stern like "could you please repeat that back to me". You could tell he was rushed and so basically all we got was his address and instructions about not sending packages and "bye mom I love you and Dad" CLICK! But, you know what? That did me a world of good. I just needed to hear his voice. Thanks again for all your kind words about Cody and your prayers. I pray for his success and that God will just wrap his loving arms around him. I also pray for angels to hold Cody's tongue so he don't smart off and get in trouble~! Happy Monday and hugs!
