I was browsing through Value Village the other day and came across some antique telephone insulators. I had seen these cool looking glass insulators used in all kinds of craft and garden projects on Pinterest. They were only a couple of bucks each, so I snapped them all up!
For my first project I decided to make a sun catcher/windchime for my garden. I have a huge stash of beads and jewelry chain so I thought this would be a good way to use up some of the supplies I know I will never use. I also have a huge stash of old keys that I bought on eBay several years ago. I purchased someone’s very old, large key collection for dirt cheap. In the collection there were a lot of antique skeleton keys, but there were also a lot of random rusted broken keys. Since I won’t be using the keys that are in poor condition for jewelry making I chose a couple of them to use for this project.
The other insulators I bought were larger and heavier so I’m not sure if I am going to make more windchimes or make something else like candle holders or other garden art.
