When The Stars Come Out
Topic: Jewelry

I went looking through my jewelry findings drawer for something and had to take a baggie off the top first. As I spied the contents I suddenly had an idea and the original project got sidelined. What? Like that never happens to you?

Anyway, the contents of the baggie were these wire stars that were wire-wrapped. I used jumprings to attach them together. I also attached some spare chain to the back to make it long enough and gave it a lobster claw clasp. Ooh ooh ooh - I spied in the front of another clear drawer some star-shaped buttons. I had the idea to encase them inside the wire stars, which took some doing because they were just a bit too big. Some manovering of the wire wrap was required and then I used some flat-nosed pliers to clamp the wrap flat so the buttons could not shift around or escape.

I like this a lot!
