My new line: Old Turns New
[caption id="attachment_131" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="the number 3"][/caption] When Will decided he could build me a new workbench, I needed it to be as economical as possible. Therefore, he went to the amazing Rebuilding Center to find all of the materials he needed to build my bench (keep in mind, as you read this, that Will had never even built a table before). Even though I have a lot of faith in him, I was skeptical on how usable this workbench would turn out to be. Man did he prove me wrong!! He used two old doors for the top and reclaimed lumber for the support of the MOST AMAZING WORKBENCH I could have ever dreamed up. [caption id="attachment_135" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="betsy cross and her awesome workbench"][/caption] When he was preparing the doors to be used for the top of the bench, he removed the old door numbers. We both looked at each other, had a clever moment of pause and he said, "you should hang onto these". I did. Two months later these necklaces were born and with the addition of my curtain rod holder hoops, a new betsy & iya line is born: Old Turns New.

I would link these to my shop, but I sold both of them almost immediately after I presented them to the world. Luckily, I have returned to the Rebuilding Center to dig and dig and find more old, lonesome doorless door numbers. Stay tuned for some awesome new one-of-a-kind necklaces and earrings from reclaimed material.
