De-stash Showcase - show us your de-stash goodies!

(Jacqueline Austen) #1

Hi everyone. I have been listing a lot of de-stash on here, making space for stock and more beads (don’t need them, but always looking for the next new thing!)

Have any of you been listing crafting items that you no longer need? List them here and let us know what you bought and made with them originally - show us a picture of the finished item if you have one, so we can all admire it.

I have these Ruby Zoisite gemstone beads in my shop under de-stash.

Originally, some had been used to make a necklace, which I sold at a local fair a year or two ago. I don’t have a picture that will up-load on here, but the gems had been teamed with black onyx and a pendant of Ruby zoisite - all sterling silver.

PS I will keep trying to load a photo!

That sounds very pretty. The stones are lovely. I wonder if you have any “square” cut stones in your destash - I had a bracelet of lovely square mixed semi-precious stone beads, which I took apart and used for a series of hand-embellished woolfelt journals. I’ve run out of the beads and can’t find any more!!
I’ll take a look at your shop and see what’s there!
By the way, I’d have loads of “Destash” if I could only bring myself to part with it!

I went and looked. Why didn’t you say you make Gorgeous Jewellery?
This is my favourite:

Wow! Thank you Lizzie! Yes, I make jewellery too. I do have square cut stones, not yet listed. What sizes or types where you looking for?

De-stash is a great way of parting with a few items to make space and re-coup some of the money spent to buy more! If you do have any, do put it here and show us all.

Off to have a look in your shop.

By the way, your books and journals are lovely - this is my favourite!

A stash-busting exercise is waaaayyy overdue . I have come to the sad conclusion that I am never going to use all the items I have amassed over the years. So this is a start … I will be adding items on a continual basis no doubt !!! :confused:



(Lizzie Gillum, Bedfordshire, Uk ) #10

Thank you Jacqueline!

This was one of the felt journals, with some of the stones attached:

The journal was about A5 size, so the stones would have been 1-1.5cm cubes really. They were various semi-precious stones, such as rose & white quartz, jasper, jade (maybe?!) etc… I don’t know what all of them were, but they were all nice!

Let me see what I have and I will let you know. I have some stones, smaller than your size specifics. Have you thought about other shapes? I could put a pack together for you.

PS I do have these listed that might be good…

(Lizzie Gillum, Bedfordshire, Uk ) #12

Thanks I have other shapes & types of beads, but it was these I couldn’t seem to find anywhere! I have no idea where the lady I bought my bracelet from got the beads! They were just a nice size and I liked them being a mixture of stones, as I could use them in a variety of ways.
I’d be interested in the smaller ones - would at least like to see them?
