Grab Bag

At a recent sale, there were several plastic sandwich bags full of jewelry bits tossed haphazardly on the dining room table. I snagged this one that was marked $1.50. Just so you know, I don't like paying more than $1 for anything, so this was a stretch for me.

Just look at what was buried in all that bad 80's pot metal!

All of these pieces will be repurposed into rings and hair doodads. I like the shiny green rhinestone gem best of all. Which one is your favorite?

Why don't you collect a few more bags of this stuff and then glue (all of it) to a piece of plywood shaped like an Xmas tree...?
Gawd...I've seen alot of good jewelry twisted and tortured into one of those god-awful holiday displays. Women in the 60's/70's musta had alot of free time.

I've recently discovered what hidden treasures can be inside of jewelry grab bags! There's a local shop that has started bagging up bits and pieces of jewelry on occasion. I admit that I pay $3 each for mine though. :-)
