I would like to make a set of jewelry using resin and beads. I think these supplies would work with that.

I love these metal jewelry components!  I am just learning about making metal jewelry, in part to compliment my fused glass beads and cabochons.  I've wondered where to go for quality components and was inspired when I read the "Sweet Six Things" post!  I'm just a hobbyist who is crazy about glass, metal and stone!

I love Steampunk! Copper bracelet needs to be embossed ;-)  Rings and pendant could be nice using resin and small gears and other small parts or pictures. Leather stamps and leather bracelet :-)  Great supplies to use!

WOW! Thanks for this opportunity to enter. I have a good friend and beading buddy who lives in a city about 100 miles away so don't get together as often as we'd like. When either of us will be near each other or in another city at the same time we plan an outing to a bead shop or get together for jewelry making therapy. There's nothing like sharing your treasured passion with a like minded friend. The ideas flow like lava as we discuss the possibilities that a single item will evoke. I'd love to win this treasure chest so that we could share these lovelies to create more lovelies.

This summer it dawned on me as I was telling my kids that they can do anything and encouraging them to find something they love that I wasn't leading by example because for the last 15 years I have wanted to make jewelry but "didn't have time".  Wanting to practice what I preach I signed up for my first metal working class and love it more than I ever imagined.  It was like an outer body experience. This collection seems like it would add fuel to my fire and give me lots of inspiration.

Our crafting group on Meetup participate in crafting challenges where we create Mystery Projects without advance preparation or prior knowledge of what it is that we will be making. I look at these components and WOW. I have some inspired ideas. It would be so much fun to incorporate these into one of our metalworking or chainmail challenges. Super cool! Would love to be picked!

I am a painter (oils & acrylics on large canvas) who was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer in the last year. It has caused spinal fractures and compression, among other things, and left me without the physical ability to paint as i like. I started beading when i decided to make "awareness" jewelry for my type of cancer. I fell in love with the beads, and then wire, and am starting to explore metal. I would love to have this encouraging package of goodies!

Wow! What a beautiful collection! I am teaching myself a new work at home trade with jewelry making and very interested in working with metals. I would like to add a little Steampunk altered art flair to these fabulous pieces from Nunn Design and post images of what I create all over Facebook, Pinterest and We Heart It! I have a huge opal egg that I would love to slice up for those channel bangle bracelets and how about some watch parts & wings dangling from the leather cuff bracelet, eh? I have some gold ore flakes that would make those cufflink bezels sparkle and some "in the rough" rubies for the ring bezel. Retro-Futuristic? :-)

on 20 Sep 2013 7:02 PM

These items look like my favorite type of components!  Have resin and have been waiting to get some components to use it and this kit provides that opportunity.  Look like great items!!!

This summer, we mostly puttered around the house, settling in to our new home.  We did sneak a couple of long weekends away.  One was to attend the wedding of a good friend.  It was a small but lovely wedding, and we enjoyed the time away.

Sounds like a scary movie.  " I know what you did this past summer" lol.  For me my summer was bad.  I lost my son in January so I didn't feel like doing anything.  I watched a lot of Nunn Design videos and got started doing things with Epoxy clay.  I watched her new video using the clay on her new bangles and so want to try that technique.  I also love the new screw in bezels on the leather cuff.  So much fun.  This is a great opportunity to get me moving.  Thanks for the contest.

Well in the summer of my 3rd grade I think we went on a road trip/camping vacation with my grandmother. Toured crystal cave, went to valley fair and spent too many hours in a vehicle with my parents, 3 sisters and my grandma. One of my favorite memories!

I look forward to cutting out the designs and stamping them with my tools. I love creating and these won't disappoint me either.

Thank you for the opportunity. Living on a fixed income does have its drawbacks, but I do what I can, and I love what I do.

I'm an engineer, and I love jewelry! A few years ago, while I was at an engineering conference in Las Vegas I took my first jewelry making class. It was a beaded necklace offered by the Whole Bead Show using seed beads and a lampwork focal bead. This year I decided to add other mediums to my jewelry designs, and I jumped in with both feet and went to the Metal Clay Mojo conference. I had never worked with metal clay until a few weeks ago, but ended up buying 100g and a kiln last week. I will be attending ArtBLISS in a few days to take Stacie Florer's Thin gage sheet metal class, and Christine Damm's Polymer clay bead class. I would love to win this collection to enhance my growth.

What I did this summer and what I'd make with these fun little baubles and bits have the same answer! That worried me that I might be boring. But thinking back on my youth, we used to go camping every summer and what I didn't do was slice my feet on the shale banks of the river or get in trouble for letting my little brother tag along when I went exploring. Honest I had no way of knowing we were walking by poison ivy!  .... or that he was walking through it .....

This past summer we took a couple of small trips.  One to southern Missouri to the lakes and one to Iowa to visit family and attend the state fair.  It was a very enjoyable summer with the garden being bountiful so we ate lots of good fresh vegetables and I was able to even can.  The best part of the summer though was because we didn't travel so much I had plenty of time to work in my studio beading and playing with polymer clay.  I would love to use the above components with my clay, and would do something manly with the leather for my sons.  Hope you have a blessed day!

My summer was yucky...i had to go back to using my wheelchair and oxygen. I didn't get to go to disney world. But, i had some great art shows with wonderful people. I got to teach some art classes with sweet kids. So i guess overall it was good, just glad that i still get to play with clay.
