Barbarian hoarde- once more with feeling

I flew into the dance of joy yesterday, as my package from mybrokenart arrived and I got to sort through a whole big batch of rusty crusty broken vintage thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiings!!!! :D :D :D

bits of hoops- none of them have matching friends, so there'll be lots of mis-matching in the way I did with sunflight.

This crazy thing is an earring- I'm going to try to set some crystals in it for pure primitive futuristic space age tribal goodness.

Lovely lovely coppery brassy rusty chain and some great tribal plates.

Various bits of crusty goodness- I think that square one might be passed on to a certain fancy person because I can see her doing something fantastical with it. She's good at squares and I can envision some sort of relic happening.

wonderful wobbly wavy things- I'm hoping to hammer these but they're pretty stiff. Might just have to sew them directly on cuffs.

Beauuutiful Mosque like architecture with a blue finish.

Om nom nom nom! Rusted feast.

Now I have to go make things with it. I woke up thinking about it I was so excited!

OMG, you received great stuff! I love anything that's rusty! I think rust is the most beautiful addition to a vintage looking piece. I think if I could I would have it on everything :-)
Enjoy your day and make some fab art!

Cheers, Gaby

Oh yeah! I'm sharing in your joy as I also found a wonderful rusty box of thiiiiiings this weekend. We stopped at an outdoor flea market and there was a guy selling tie dye tshirts, we went through and talked with him a while and he pulls out this box of rusty metal things he found while metal detecting and tried to sell it to me for a dollar! I gave him $5 because he made my day! Have fun with all those wonderful rusty things!
