I patinated the clips using swellegant - I was delighted when that worked! - and combined them with some button pearls, some czech glass cones and some links from a broken, vintage necklace that belonged to my mother. I was quite struck by the design possibilities these humble clips offer and, with this post in mind, I had a nose around Pinterest to see what other uses makers had found for them. I came across several tutorials. I do love these sweet ice skate ornaments.
How dinky?! These bookmarks are also very sweet - and simple too:
And finally, these flowers have a pleasing vintage look and could make for natty focals.
As I said, this is my first post here, so I'd like to say 'hello' to you all and thank you for having me! My paperclip earrings have sold but you can see a selection of other earrings on my blog and in my shop.
Ta-ra until next time,
