Put them all together and you get...
One of my favorite haunts is the scrapyard. There's a never-ending supply of brass & aluminum to feed my need to make windchimes, suncatchers, clocks and spinners.
Another adventure is the local recycling center where I have my pick of all sizes and shapes of colored glass bottles. These beauties will have a second life as vases & spirit bottles.
Crystals, rocks or stones...whatever you call them, they're beautiful!
From Agate to Zebra Jasper, I love the variety of colors and textures.
My humble pliers & miles & miles of solid copper magnet wire (copper with a enamel coating that's normally found in alternators or air conditioners). Together, they are a powerful creative force!
Marbles , marbles & more marbles...
usually 30 or so colors in stock @ 2500 marbles per box
(insert joke about losing one's marbles here).
Garage sales & auctions &
thrift stores, oh my!
An excellent source of vintage telephone insulators for candleholders and picture frame glass for candle plates.
