Yesterday morning the Ohio Jewelry & Metal Arts Guild met at the Hartville Flea Market at the early time of 8am! Our mission was to find fount objects to turn into jewelry!
I bought these two 'hologram' boxes. I loved the hologram and thought I could cut it out of the lid to use as the gemstone in a piece of jewelry.
I bought this nice ink pen for drawing, it's got cork where your fingers hold it so it's nice and soft. The pen is from the 1940's.
I bought a tiny thermometer and a tiny compass that would be fun in a piece of jewelry. The compass might make a cool ring.
I just loved this little jewel like bicycle reflectors, can't wait to use them in a piece.
These two pairs of cutting devices caught my eye, honestly not sure what each is for but we'll find out.
I found a wee little hammer that was too cute to pass up and a couple of jewelry tools!
I love to keep a fan in my purse for those hot days and this one was entirely made out of wood, very beautiful design.
I got a millimeter gauge since I haven't been able to find a battery for my electronic one.
I bought this acrylic pieces because the trees really caught my eye, they are embedded in the middle and can cast a shadow in the right lighting. These might inspire a resin design.
My most exciting find was this stool, it's really a beautiful piece of furniture. I don't plan on making jewelry out of it.
It has 4 glass ball claw feet which I loved!
Needless to say we all had a great deal of fun looking at all the crazy items for sale. What would you make with these items?
