What no Glass? Fiber Bits


As I write this, I am watching a White Castle Commercial that shows a pig pulling a cord and being bathed in BBQ sauce. What does this have to do with Fiber Bits? Absolutely nothing. I just thought you should know that fiber bits are not improbable nor are they ridiculous as that commercial.

Back to fiber bits. What are fiber bits. They are components that you can use in jewelry. They have a metal base and are covered with different types of fibers. If you check out my etsy store and my artfire store, you'll find some fiber bits.



These fiber bits are in my etsy store. If you are an old Star Trek fan, and you remember the episode called "The Trouble with Tribbles," you might remember Tribbles. These particular fiber bits remind me of tribbles. I don't know why, but they do.

















These fiber bits, which are in my artfire store, remind me of sand dollars on the ocean floor. Do you see that, too?


















Here are some earrings I made using fiber bits. They are really cute, and they are in my etsy store.

I love fiber bits. No, they aren't glass, but they are fun components to use in jewelry. Who makes them? I do. Check out my shops. You might like them, even if they aren't glass!

Those are too cool! Do you have any problem with them getting manky if people wear them against their skin?

Jo, that's a good question. The answer is, I don't think so, but I don't know for sure since I just made them up. I think they would be all right, but I just can't answer with an absolute yes.

Ooooh, I love fibers! Fiber and glass do go well together.

I can't say I remember the Tribbles episode, but I know I've heard their name and seen their images somewhere...and I think yours are pretty cute! I love this idea, Mallory. It's lots of fun and good-giggle-inducing, and I'll bet people can't stop playing with them once they touch these components in a piece of jewelry.
