Here is my entry.  This started out as the vintage shade pulls in the first photo.  I combined it with large jump rings to make the necklace in the second picture.

Here are 2 other pictures of the necklace I made for the contest for people who love Handmade and comment on the contest.  I call the necklace Heart Handmade Artists Bubble Necklace.  I made it from vintage iridescent bubble beads from the 1940's or 50's.  The round ones were previously a necklace in a strand and the hear ones are new old stock.  The necklace closes with a magnetic closure. 
The colors in the first picture are more accurate.

I like the pictures and the artwork of the contestants that posted already. 

I think the person who wins the necklace is also going to be very happy! 


Have a Great Saturday!

Here is mine.  I took the word trash in the instructions literally, so here are my plastic bottle "crystal" earrings. :)  Instead of throwing the bottle in the recycling bin, I cut it up to make the "crystals" I took apart a pair of old earrings for the rest of it.  I also didn't want to do the earrings on a mug, but it was the best background color I could find to show the clear earrings.

Wow! I see a lot of fantastic pieces of art. Very creative. Going to be a tough contest.

I wasn't going to enter the contest, because I had no clue what to make. Then I settled on something other then my jewelry. Then I changed my mind. Then the other day I bought some sheer brown curtains, and I had to trim some off and hem them to fit. I was going to throw the excess material away when it hit me. I could use the material to make my trashy work of art.

I cut to different size strips, folded in half and stitched up the side, then turned them inside out to prevent it from unraveling. This worked good for the necklace and bracelet. (Just wish I would of thought of it before I made the earrings).

Does the commenter have to be a HAF member, or should we try to get other people involved?

Anyone can comment!  The more the merrier!

We should get as many involved as possible. However you have to login to comment, so they will have to sign up as a buyer to leave a comment. We have too many spammers to do it any other way. Before when we had it set up to allow guest comments I would literally have to delete 400 or more comments daily. Most would be caught by a spam plugin I used but it is honestly not worth it.
So yes anyone can comment but they will have to sign up as a buyer to comment
