This first piece is made with a whole lot of buttons. I just used plastic white buttons and wired them with some old colorful telephone wire my dad got while working at the Kennedy Space Center in the early 1970's.
They were rewiring all the telephone equipment out there, and the wire was being tossed, so my dad asked if he could have some. They told him to take as much as he wanted, and so he did.
I chose this one because it was pretty time consuming and unusual.
The next necklace I am thinking about entering is this one. I won these beads from Elisabeth of Beads For Busy Gals. You can see all the beads by reading my blog about it. I chose this one because it is colorful and very fun to wear.
This last piece I made in the most recent Bead Soup Blog Part Hop.
I got a TON of wonderful beads. I did a bit of wire wrapping on this one, as I have on all the pieces I am considering to enter. This piece not only has beads from my Bead Soup partner, Shawn Marie of Bent Wire Boutique, but also some unusual items; parts of a curtain rod I was not using. I decided to upcycle instead of through it away.
So, what do you think? I've never entered any of my pieces before, and I plan to enter several of them this year. I already have the other pieces chosen for different categories. I am sure after the contest I will be blogging all about it. I chose these pieces because they of their uniqueness.
So, what do you think?
The Winning Beads?
or Bead Soup Upcycle?
