I've been wanting to put these old wooden drawer pulls together in a necklace for a little while now + I couldn't resist adding the antique key too. 
Give me a shout!

Today was a great day spent in the studio with Jess of Simply Jess Jewelry who I have been blogging about for a couple of months. Today we met in my studio and spent a few hours digging through all the lovely donated jewelry we received from family and friends for our workshop. We had a blast picking out items to deconstruct and reassemble into some lovely new jewelry designs. Jess is a wonderful young gurl who has a real eye for putting shapes and colors together to make some striking designs. She is also a real tool junky and we ooo'd and ahhh'd over each the tools we both have. Jess who is in the 7th grade is really well organized and has a real passion for making jewelry. I think she will go very far with her talent. Thanx Jess, I really had a blast and learned a lot. 

Please help Jess raise funds for her People to People Ambassador Program trip to Europe this summer by visiting her website and purchasing her jewelry!!

 Peace.
