    Postage Stamp Table Top


    At first glance, you would never imagine the mosaic-like table top is completely covered with vintage stamps.  How cool is that?

    The possibilities are endless when it comes to DIY tables.  All you need is an interesting stand and a piece of wood for the table top.  The use of vintage stamps in this project is gorgeous!


    This beautiful project comes from the blog Gardening Nirvana.

    DIY Studded Barrette



    Love this studded barrette that is so unbelievably simple to make that you will want to make one in every color you love!

    I've used studs in fabric embellishment, but never dreamed of using them in this way.  Very creative!

    DIY Multi-Strand Bracelet


    Rebecca from My Girlish Whims always comes up with the most awesome jewelry designs that I've seen online.  

    She has also discovered Elements of Antiquity which is an online shop that sells aged pewter jewelry components that are 100% made in the USA, lead free and nickel free.  Great shop to get inspired!

    Those of us who enjoy jewelry design as a hobby or as a means to make a living are always looking for sources of inspiration and unique findings.

    Click here for a tutorial with lots of photos on how to make this gorgeous bracelet!  Thank you Rebecca!
