Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results


I got them done!

I put them in collage form…not so sure it’s the best way to show them off. They are all different but much the same, made with various papers from the 50’s & early 60’s. I made them all together to be more effective with my time. I decided I enjoy doing them one at a time more but they just take so long to make. It’s so much more time-effective to make a few together.

Paris~Wallflowers collage

Every time I work with beads and wire I can’t believe I worked at BF for so many years with that wonderful bead department and I never learned how to wrap wire. I need to make the time some day when I’m over that way again and have my girl Carol show me how. Can’t say I hate how the wire turned out, it’s just that I get stressed while I’m working on them…each one is unique and I guess that’s OK!

I love the candy pink bead that came off a broken necklace that belonged to my grandma.
