So, I work at michaels, in the jewelry department, and I looooove jewelry! I kind of liked jewelry before I worked in the jewelry section, but mainly I just wore the junky claires or ardenes jewelry. It is soooo much better when you make it yourself! Or buy quality hand made items from someone. It just feels so much better. :D
Anyways, we got a new machine at Michaels and it looks so cool, I'd love to have it if I had the room and could afford it, hahaha. It's called the Vintaj, by Sizzix. It cuts, etches, and embosses designs into metal plates, such as the one in the photo above.
Beautiful designs! So if any of you have this machine and have tried it on jewelry, please show me what you've done and how you like the machine. :)
