LizTech Teacup Pin

Somehow Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday escaped me... (what happened to Thursday?), so I guess that makes this Teacup Friday. I'm sharing a special teacup pin that I received from my oldest sister a few gift giving seasons ago. This artistic pin is crafted and signed on the back by LizTech and dated 'o1. A Pennsylvania artist, Jill Elizabeth, started her business in 1984 by recycling old costume jewelry into unique one of a kind pieces finding inspiration from American Southwest, Egyptian, and Indian mythology. She has many beautiful designs available on her website, and encourages her customers to Go Forth and Sparkle! But if you're fortunate and patient like Angela, of Tea With Friends, you might just find a treasure on eBay at a considerable discount. Angela shares her discovery, a LizTech teapot pin here.

What a great idea! My mom, in the 1970's took apart a lot of her mom's costume jewelry in attempt to make some crafty Christmas tree...remember those? She never finished it...I have all the pieces and parts though!! Maybe I can think of something creative?? I don't know...but it's worth a try! I love anything teacup related!!
