And the next crop of things....

Let's start off with the simplest one of the bunch: A repurposed tassel and chain, and a porcelain bead from a friend's destash:

Next, a wire wrapped bullet casing (shell?) with a cameo button.  This may not be done yet, and might need the cameo popped off and re-glued, as it looks off-center.  I'm not sure where I'm going with this yet, but I'm having fun.

Ok, these are absolutely lovely, and I'm proud of them.  Destashed brass stampings and pink plastic.  Light as feathers!  For reasons unknown, I watched "Pretty in Pink" the other night, and I was all "omg, I want to wear all that repurposed thrift store goodness that was carefully calculated by coldhearted executives, too!"

These are actually prettier than the accessories in the movie, tho ;)

And finally, the most demanding one, in terms of time.  I had to let this baby cure overnight.  There's a washer I picked up outside, driftwood and a shell from a recent beach visit, a brass "coin", and filigree from an old dollar store earring.  And scrap chain to finish it off. The thing's hanging on a brown grosgrain ribbon.

That's all I got for now, folks!
