Starry, starry night…

I really like multi-purpose components.  My firing of bronze metal clay stars last night produced this batch of lovely little embellishments that can be added to a multitude of projects. Each slightly curved and textured satin finished star measures approximately 13mm from point to point – a perfect embellishment for bead embroidered projects!  Several of these linked one on top of another would make wonderfully kinetic tiered earrings!  They could be used as charms dangling from a necklace or bracelet.  And used as bead caps, they would take a mundane bead from boring to beautiful.  I’m definitely keeping some of these for projects I have in mind, but I’m willing to share as well and will be offering small collections of these little stars in my Etsy shop for those of you who have an appreciation for such versatile components!
