Before The Bedazzler...

What did we do before the BEDAZZLER?
Well, we just had to "dazzle" ourselves,
didn't we?! And we did it with vintage
jewels.




Sparkly broaches & baubles....





Beauteous bracelets & beads...



Alas and alack, wearing such lovelies is not
enough for me....I am well and truly "HOOKED"...





I need to see them in all their glittery glory
all around my home!






So, I design with them...






frame them...





decorate with them...






display them...




And, oh, for corn's sake! Looks like I have
been found out! I even "bedazzle" starfish
with them! (in my own defence, I did this
by hand with vintage rhinestones! ;)

Hurry on over to Julia's and find out
what other dazzling delights people are
HOOKED ON THIS FRIDAY

  10. It's good you have those lovely pieces instead of me. If I had them, I would glue them onto art works - and then I wouldn't have them anymore!

    lovely!
