If I look hard enough in my stash of junk I always find what I need: an old red paperclip and a few other rusty odds and ends.
I know, it’s different, but remember, this is JUNK Market Style. 
What’s nice about the clip is you can change the artwork theme to suit the holiday - pumpkins, hearts, bunnies, etc.
Check out the price on the bottom left corner...10 cents!

I was asked to create a vintage necklace using an old Santa Claus pin, which sounded pretty easy except there was a catch: the pin HAD to remain on its original card.

I'm currently working on a line of vintage jewelry pieces and will be posting photos soon.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR...!!!

Jim

LloydsLandingofSears writes: Perfect idea. Now, the package could have had more pieces on cards for various other holidays or seasons, and in a way you've figured that out. I'd like to see the whole set, if you come up with one some day, Jim. You're so great at these things! ~Mary~ Posted: 11:02 pm on December 22nd
CottageElements writes: Jim, you would be the one to ask to complete a task like this. Very clever and so well done. But of course, you'll get nothing less than this from you! Bravo!

Good job little elf!

nudge, nudge, wink, wink,

Junkpony writes: Well done, love the red clip and ease of interchangeable goofiness. I certainly would have been stumped by the 'catch.' Merry Christmas Jim! Posted: 9:00 am on December 21st
georgiamoon writes: Well Jimmy,
this is certainly a departure for you. We have seen jewelry from you before, but this is quite a different piece. I LOVE the red clip and the other bits and pieces you put together. Other people would be thrown by the "catch" but not you...you always come through! Very festive and FUN!!!
Happy Holidays to you my friend!
