From Trash to New Jewelry!

Yesterday when I was walking to my dentist office, I saw a smashed tape recorder lying in a yard near the sidewalk. I didn't see it as a smashed up tape recorder, however. I saw new jewelry! Cindy and I started Dizzy Discards, a new line of NeeNee & CheeChee's Beaded Things, using pieces from items like this, scraps of fabric, pieces of paper, and found objects, for our new jewelry. With my husband's help to dismantle the push on/push off switches and drilling the holes, I was able to create a new pair of earrings and a pendant for a simple necklace with some of the parts from the smashed tape recorder. These will go up for sale, so if you're interested in purchasing them, contact me.
