I want to say one word to you. Just one word. Plastics. (The Graduate 1967)
Yes, plastics. When they were invented in the 1930's the multitude of uses to which they could be put was immediately apparent...especially in costume jewlery. Vintage plastic beads are one of my favorite materials. I like hunting for them, finding them even more and recycling them into my necklaces and earrings. They imitate glass and shell without the fragility, stone without the weight and pearls and other gems without the expense.
I am a plastic fantastic lover!
