Let's think about this for a second - we've gone from all film to all digital in the span of a decade. I'm sure the folks at Polaroid and Kodak feel like they've been punched in the face, metaphorically speaking. Truly, digital photography has changed our world in innumerable ways.
Take the ubiquitous slide, for example. I guarantee that my nieces and nephew have NO idea what these were used for originally. And how many of these little babies are out there, forever relegated to the obsolete wastebasket?
I've always loved slides because of their miniature nature, so it's probably no surprise that I've been stockpiling these unused slide frames. Thanks to places like Manto Fev and The Paper Flea Market, my supply keeps growing!
I've been collecting them for years, but never had a concrete idea for them - until now. Introducing - SLIDE PINS!

The idea is so simple, I can't believe I didn't notice it before. But I've been wanting to do something different with my jewelry line, and these little guys fit the bill perfectly!

I'm having a total blast making these. I've only begun this week, but I'll have many more to come - stay tuned! :)
