Rings & Things Blogger Challenge - Tim Holtz Idea-ology series

When I saw the Tim Holtz collection in this months Rings & Things blogger challenge, I will admit, for a nano second, I cocked my head and thought to myself, but isn't this for scrap booking?!?

*blink* *blink*

Then the neon sign that flashes OPEN came on over my head.

This was so much fun! I had the idea in my head and was spurred along by the 80's music channel, bouncing in my chair to Adam Ant, I came up with this pin!

Heres' what I used:

55-000-05 - Idea-ology, Ornate Plates (Antiqued Metals) *

40-099-24-7 - Chain, Footage, Oval Curb, 10.5mm (Antiqued Copper Plated)*

46-402-54 - Artistic Wire™, 22g, 15yd (Natural Copper)

24-101-7 - 10mm Round Bead, Filigree, (Antiqued Copper Plated)

37-136-7 5mm Jump Ring, Round, (Antiqued Copper Plated)

Glass pearls

Faceted 10mm carnelian bead

Vintage 'amber' glass bead

Metal pin back

I miss the 80's. It was so much fun, and from looking at the latest style trends, it make be making a come back!

I need to find my leopard capri's and hand cuff belt and bring it back!
