mamma atc Thrift shops, and yard sales, and bargains aplenty,

Clothing, and notions and fabrics aplenty,

Baubles, and bangles, and all thinks that sparkle and shine,

Yes these are a few of my favorite things…

This week’s theme for the MAMMA challenge was favorite things.  One of which has to be vintage jewelry.  I love vintage jewelry!

This is a mixed media piece.  The background is black felt (like in the jewelers showcase) and to that I needle felted some fancy yarn and recycled sari yarn to the background.  On top of that I added glass, pearl, a crystal and other seed beads to make the “necklace” more ornate. 

This weeks swap cards are being sent to Margaret, our beloved MAMMA, to help put a smile on her face.  She very recently lost her beloved husband Ernie who had been sick for a while.  It is also to celebrate the first anniversary of the group.
