My Latest Pyrex-Inspired Project


Call me crazy, but I have two passions: making jewelry and collecting pyrex. I thought the two should meet :) Here are my latest creations!

I use a traditional needle and thread method popular in Eastern European design. This is a hobby that has been passed down through my family (grandmother to my mother, my mother to me), and we each add our own twists. See my inspiration?!





Thinking of adding my necklaces to my etsy site (http://www.etsy.com/shop/bobeskydesigns). I really enjoy the two hobbies, and like anything else- they take up the whole house (and are very time consuming)! But, totally worth it! Hope you like them :)


 


Happy Pyrexing!
