Pretty Shiny

I have to admit, I'm susceptible to shiny, glitzty bling.

I like things that look old and have some shiny stones or faceted beads.

So I took a couple of the pewter pieces and checked on my stash of shiny, glittery things. To see if anything would fit.

And guess what?

These two pretty little round faux gems were just the right size.

I really like the way they combine with the pewter. I think they'd be beautiful as earrings. Maybe with a pearl at the top, or a faceted glass bead.

Because you can never have too much glitz.

I have to dig deeper in my stash of bling, and see what else I've got in there. Maybe some more colors, wouldn't a light blue faux gem be pretty. Umm hmmm, love that shiny, pretty.

One thing I noticed, and that I like very much, is that the gems get that "worn and much loved" look around the edges - have you ever noticed old costume jewelry, how the gems sometimes darken at the rims? Not planned, but very cool indeed!

Yes, I put them on Etsy in the shop - I have some new plans for the expeditionD shop, something I think will be fun and different.

Thanks, all! Putting on the glitz...
