I used vintage sheet music for some of my wraps, which I first covered with Golden gel medium. This will protect your precious vintage paper.
Last night I finished a pair of earrings to go along with Nancy's necklace, using smokey quartz briolettes and gorgeous czech crystals bought from Z Beads in the West University area of Houston. Don't they look like ice cream with a chocolate swirl and caramel? They actually have a vein of violet and tuquoise colors running thru them. They are scrumptious!
I took a few more pictures making a prop out of some vintage journal paper I had rolled and tied with vintage dupioni silk. It normally pokes out of an antique vase I have in our spare bedroom. I bought this paper more than a year ago from my now very good friend Colette Copeland. I have used it alot in my art. When I turned the charm over, I was totally surprised. I had forgotten I had also used vintage sheet music on the back! Oh, I couln't have planned it better than that. Life is good.
