I ventured into a couple of Antique Stores this week and had a ferret about in their "odds and sods" boxes and came up with some things that I hope to use in some jewellery.
Well of course if you are going to make jewellery it is a splendid idea to have something groovy to display it in and so to my next find ...
Even the latch is just lovely and solid brass, as are the hinges.
I hope the owner is still using the cutlery because it must have been very good quality to be encased in such a well made box.
Sophies to join her meme Flea Market Finds or just have a look at the stuff people are digging up in thrift stores and op-shops all around the place! It's fun!
