My friends now routinely bring me old jewelry from their jewelry boxes, thrift store finds, or odd odds and ends that they think I can use in my metal confections. Robin, one of my “suppliers”, found a belly dancing belt at our favorite thrift store. The bellydancing belts are cascades of chain…so these necklaces practically made themsleves. The blue and gold one featured in my blog banner (ablove) is made with turquoise and window pane agate beads. It was sold at a benefit auction for the Bellevue Youth Theater Foundation.
