A Couple Of Charity Shop Finds

I am always on the look out for necklaces that are made up of triangle shapes  because I immediately think “Christmas Trees” …….
….. so buying this necklace for £1.25 was a no brainer.  In my head I could see a simple small square card with just one triangle in the middle with perhaps a small square of gold card as the base, unless I can find some square gold beads to use instead. We shall see……
This bracelet weighs an absolute ton and is soooooo not me, but for just 99p it would have been rude not to have bought it.  It was the many pearl beads  with a loop that I was after for all sorts of projects, I am such a lazy crafter and though Marc has shown me the technique so many times I am still a cack handed jeweller and making even the simplest  loop evades me!
I am not sure about the shell beads, also with loops yet,  but I have been looking at pendants made using old buckles on Pinterest so when I have five minutes (?????) I might have a play …… but I am pretty sure Marc would snatch my arm off for them if I don’t.
