A little vintage Friendly Plastic design by "Same as it ever was"

The vintage style is a very hot trend right now....in fact even thought the vintage trend fades a little...it never goes out of style.  

I stumbled up on this design searching thru Etsy and thought you would enjoy.

 The artists describes:

 How many of you remember Friendly Plastic? You know those little plastic bars from the craft store that you warmed in water and then turned them in some funky designs and attached findings and made them into jewelry pieces. This was a medium that I (MaLinda) took to all new heights. Starting with winning local competitions in design to national attention and pattern design for the same.

These earrings are an example of the work that I did with this medium, incorporating Friendly Plastic with small silver beads to make an earring that is approximately 2 1/2" long, very lightweight, with surgical steel post. They are fun and attention getting!


Add these to your handmade and I suppose at this point vintage (made in the late 80's)jewelry collection for a fun upbeat difference.
