Something Special

Ahh, a nice weekend at home. I'm working on something special with this amazing glass item in black and fuschia. I mentioned it in a previous post so I thought I'd give you a little taste of what is coming. Think cranberry for that deep pink glass. I have some pretty Czech glass in the same color and I'm challenging myself to work all this into a necklace with a Victorian feel. We'll see what I end up with.

Speaking of something special, my dad brought home one of these fun pincushions home after being stationed with the Navy in Japan during the Korean war. As a child I always thought it was a very unique and unusual item. When my mom passed away, Dad got rid of so many items in the house and I have a feeling this might have been one of them since I haven't seen it anywhere. I might be wrong, but nonetheless when I saw these tiny ones at Cost Plus World Market around Christmas I thought I'd get one of my own.

How many of you have one of these?

I'll be back during the week with fresh cupcake jewelry to show you.

MizzJewlz, That is one gorgeous piece of glass and I am really looking forward to seeing the finished piece.

The only pin cushions I have are my fingers, and yours looks like so much more fun what with the 4 voodoo heads.
