Plastic and Pearls!

I found these at a local thrift store.
As you can see, I paid $1.61 for this entire bag of beads, I mean toys.
Here's a better look.

I sorted the bag into what I thought would be useable beads, really beads.

Body parts

Flower discs

Here's what happened.  This necklace looks great as I wear it!
The body parts add that special touch. 
I also used glass pearls as spacers.
Love this!  It's a choker.

A bracelet with glass pearls and a "charm" I found in the toys.

Last but not least, the flower discs with pearls make great earrings!!

So, what do you think?
Have you ever done anything this silly before?

I love the choker!! I found a huge gallon ziploc full of plastic shaped beads at a flea market and can't wait to play. :)

HAHAHA! Those body parts sticking out crack me up. I think that anything with a hole is fair game, Miss Mallory. I like the way you think! I also believe that it is not what you have but what you do with what you have that makes the difference. This is fun! Enjoy the day. Erin

Mallory - I think that is about the coolest piece of jewelry I have ever seen. The arms and pearls just make the piece. This is so rock girlfriend.
