Monkeying Around

About this design:

My husband and I were at a Thrift store looking at golf clubs and I found an unopened set of those plastic monkeys in a barrel. I don't know why I bought them but I did. Later in the day I took my stepdaughter to Rue 21 and found a mini version of the same thing so I bought those too. I made the necklace and earrings shown here and gave them to my stepdaughter and she liked them so well that I did some for my Etsy shop too.


plastic monkeys in 2 sizes, chain and findings in silver plated non-lead pewter
