Say Cheese!

I don't know why I didn't think of these sooner! We have collected many vintage cameras over the last 20 years and they are the perfect subject to be beadified! The rolls of film came out sort of wonky…

The beads in the second photo down on the left are from my daughters 3rd grade class. Each year to raise money for the Art Trek program, our PTA holds an art auction. I had the kids make beads and will turn their work into an necklace and bracelet set. The kids were so enthusiastic and had such a great time making their beads!


The hearts on the right are a continuing exploration… More ideas keep coming to mind! Some of these will be featured in sets that will be posted by Friday at gaea.indiemade.com!

I am loving those watercolor looking hearts! And the kids' beads - what a fantastic and fun idea.

Thank you, Ann! They are fun to make! The kids were so excited to see their beads. It is a perfect project for kids! :)

Can we buy the cameras on your site? My niece is a photographer and a piece of jewelry made from one of those would be great!

Hi Marianne! Sweet! These have not been added yet. If you have a request let me know. I have a few with metal loops on hand and I will be making a few more at the end of the month. You can see a bigger picture on my Facebook page. :)
