A few weeks ago, an old cement shell of a building was demolished.
When I walked by the site, I saw thes lovely bits of rusted metal, and I knew I would have to take them home.
I took the flat pieces of the metal strapping, hammered it, removed some the rust, and.....
made some earrings....
and a couple of necklaces.
I left the metal with the lovely patina, but have added a couple of layers of paste wax that are well rubbed in.
I love the story behind these pieces of jewelry. To know that the metal had 35 years (or so) within the walls or floors and then it became some jewelry.
These rusty pieces are available in my Etsy shop.
Our snow was almost gone and then yesterday it SNOWED ALL DAY. We received over a foot of snow.
Hopefully I will be able to sit out on my deck again soon.
