I acquired an old box full of miscellaneous fishing tackle. Today, on the principle that every girl needs the option of neon orange fish eggs in her wardrobe, I made these earrings.
I plan to raid the rest of the box for more supplies. So many cool things used for fishing tackle! Like these mother-of-pearl teardrops:
The ends of these little connectors spin 360 degrees:
No clue what these do, but they're tiny and fabulous:
Love these extra big 2-hole reflectors:
If you spot any of this stuff in a future project, you'll know where it came from.
Next time you find a box of fishin' gear at a thrift shop or yard sale, think about jewelry potential. (Cautionary note: often, tackle will include lead sinkers. Be sure to discard them.)
So do tell - have you ever found something pretty in a tackle box?
