A Creation from Friendships

Quite a while back my friend, Cathy from Ma Vie Trouvee posted about winning a "workbench stash" from Linda at Objects & Elements. Cathy had pictures of some of the items and talked about how she might design with them. There was an awesome metal disk with a "K" on it and she talked about covering up the "K". Of course, with my name being Kathy with a "K", I jokingly commented to Cathy with a "C" that I personally loved the "K". Cathy immediately emailed me and said she wanted to send me the piece. Really?! How lucky was I?! A few days later I received the piece along with some other fun trinkets all wrapped up in these super cute packages.

 As luck would have it a couple of weeks later
I won a "workbench stash" from Linda.

I combined the "K" with some of the stash goodies
and came up with a fun "Creation from Friendships".
(The only items I supplied were the neck cord and copper wire.)

I attached the "K" to a strip of metal with rivets. I drilled holes in the top and attached a metal spring. I drilled another hole at the bottom to attach a couple of dangling pieces.

I'm so happy with the way this piece turned out.
Thank you Cathy and Linda 
for providing great inspirational items
and especially for your generosity!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi Kathy,

    I am Cathy's sister-in-law. I had fun reading about the exchange and seeing the piece you created. Thanks for sharing!


  3. I love it! Are you keeping it?

  4. I knew you would make an amazing piece with the "K"! You inspire me so!!! So much fun sharing with blog-land friends!!!

  6. The most i like is the fact that you renew such unuseful at first glance details and give them a new life in such wonderful and original jewelries. Love simple things done with love!


I look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
