This odd-looking tool is my new best friend.
It lets me punch holes in metal and I've been trying it on everything since I got it yesterday.
I thrifted this big earring which reminded me of Monet's paintings. I took it apart right away for all of its lovely, little pieces.
Four of the five beads will be in this necklace and one of the discs. The purple, green, and copper looks awesome together. The copper teardrop pendant only had one hole yesterday, but my new friend said hello.
The big disc from the earring went perfectly with this wooden toggle button. Now I just need to add dangly stuff.

"Fly Home" is my favorite pair of earrings from today. They use pieces from
the Monet earring and labradite chips. The bird and house charms are so cute.

Another of the discs went into this work in progress.
Here are four pairs of earrings that are laid out on my table.
More new treasures from Kim and my favorite antique store Second Changes.
