The star is porcelain, or possibly made of pottery. This is a bookmark, which is pretty nifty, with the swirls of copper wire, although not very practical—the thing kept falling out of the pages, losing my place.
Not ready to toss the earrings or the bookmark, I held onto them, contemplating how they could be reused. I was willing to sacrifice the bracelet for the beads. I love purple jewelry, especially earrings. I thought I'd combine these things to spruce up the earrings. If I failed or didn't have the patience or dexterity I knew I could rely on a neighbor to help; she makes earrings for craft fairs.
I must admit, the three-dimensional aspect is appealing.
I guess this goes to show that anything is possible, so go ahead with that project you've put off. It just may turn out to be spectacular.
