Postage Stamps

This week I was rumaging through my firelite (extra hard-drive) looking for a file. I came across a folder that had images of the beaded Postage Stamps that I made 10 years ago. Elvis was the example I used when I wrote the instructions for the Postage Stamp Pin©1998. <--This link will take you to Bead-Patterns.com where you can purchase the instructions. In 1998 the USPS issued Funding the Fight Finding a Cure Postage Stamp These two pins were made for Breast Cancer surviors. This Christmas Stamp pin is in my studio waiting for the Holidays. Oh the possiblies of creating Art with your stamps and beads. I am ready to revisit this fun project. It is a great gift idea for someone on your list

These pins are so cool! I love using found objects for my work. The design of the breast cancer stamp is really cool, and it looks even better beaded :)
