Rings n Things November Goodies

Payday! Ahhh, I mean I got a goody bag from Rings n Things. Ok, I'm being sarcastic about the payday because I've written before about how I can't pay the bills with beads - but hold on, now that I think about it, I've never actually TRIED to negotiate beads-as-payment terms with the electric company and there is a precedent for it. Isn't it said that Manhattan was "bought" for $24 worth of beads? Beads have been legal tender but I digress, on to the beady-goodness I received last week.

I chose my favorites out of the Rings n Things goody bag sent to the Bead Bloggers. Can I say I'm in love with the wooden chain? How cool is that? My creative wheels are turning.

Which ones pictured here are your favorites?

won't get a decision out of me! i am one of those people who can see potential in anything... looks like you have some fun stuff to work with! wondering how using some of your double dips to attach the watch hands to something would work? like an old vine that has wound its way around an old broken town clock... see what happens?! :0)

That wooden chain is gorgeous and is my favorite. Chunky but lite.

Wow, jackpot! My favorite is the wooden chain, but really they're all great!

I got mine too...and it looks very similar to yours! I am intrigued by that little window piece. I haven't figured out what to do but I will! My daughter and I are working on a project with the little Christmas beads and hope to show soon! Enjoy the day! Erin

- Wood chain, wood chain! Oh, um, I'm not a very neutral voter in this poll... Anyway, I love how substantial the wood chain looks, while actually being really light-weight. Good component!

I'm really loving the nameplate :) I would never have thought of using something so scrapbook-y in jewelry but I can totally see it as a brooch or even a pendant.

Hi All!

Mary - what a great idea about the double dip and the watch hands. I wouldn't have thought of that!

The wooden chain is so cool - I've definitely gotta do something with it!

Erin - I'm sure you and your daughter will come up with something lovely!

Sick Chick - yes you're right about the nameplate. Alot of scrapbooky things are making their way into the jewelry making world! :-)

Thanks for commenting!

I love that piece in the center that looks kind of like a frame...but man, wooden links!
