Altered Key Jewellery




Posted by Picasa
Some of my Altered Key Jewelery,
I found a lovely supply of keys in the charity shop this week, so there are more WIP.
ABAA's Challenge for this month is Keys, so thought these fitted the bill.
I have had a lovely day, Catching up on some sorting out this morning, then we went over the moors to princetown and a mooch round the art gallery, then onto Tavistock for a wander along the river, then a mooch round the pannier market and town, with an icecream to finish. and i didn't buy a thing!!!, saving myself for the creative stiches and hobbycraft Exeter next weekend.
i feel a spending spree coming on.
