i had a light up make up mirror. then one day it fell and cracked on the side. :(
i lived cautiously for fear of bad luck and glass shards. it still lit up, but was broken so they wouldn't have accepted it at a charity drop off. it was too nice to end up in a landfill - so i just covered the cracked side with a bunch of duck tape. it was a bit of an eyesore - but worked.
....now, with some hot glue and trinkets... it's artsy and functional.
safety note: if I do plug it in and turn on the back light my beautiful mirror could possibly be a huge fire hazard. i would recommend a non-electric mirror. keep it safe, people.
I used - beads, earrings, scrapbooking brass fasteners. beads, brooches, necklaces, rings, pendants
I cleaned out a lot of junk jewelry from my bead box- making room for a lot of new treasures.
arrange the trinkets.
mine are asymmetrical because i was trying to cover up the duck tape. i did a lot of overlapping.
but you are free to arrange in whatever way makes you happy.
at some point down the road - i may add more to the edges. we'll see...
i was inspired by my brooch bouquet that i used for my wedding this summer.
collected by all of my friends and family at my shower. put together by J and J. :)
here is a how to for a brooch bouquet...
isn't it a beaut!
