I have acquired a lot of materials for making my reenacting jewelry! I thought I'd share some pictures of the beads I'll be working with. Mostly my design ideas are from Sharon Burnston at the moment, but I'll do some painting research before I begin.
Two pairs of earrings to be taken apart - for the red coral stones and the little paste (rhinestone) flowers.Also lever-back earwires, silver spacer beads, citrine drops and silver cone findings.
One of my mom's necklaces from the 80s, to be taken apart and the quartz beads re-strung for another ribbon necklace (I have loads of extra beads, because this necklace was shortened at one point and I kept the extras).
Pile of pearls (some are glass imitations, I think), spacers, glass faceted crystals, spacers, glass beads and stone beads.
