Reveal of My Shipwreck Dandy Destash Box (picture heavy)

Richelle of the Shipwreck Dandy blog has two etsy shops. In one she sells her beautiful handmade rustic assemblage jewelry and in the other she sells handmade, vintage, and select jewelry supplies. She's currently going through a 'studio excavation' and making up destash boxes for what she unearths. I totally jumped on this deal because I just love her style.

She'll even take into consideration your preferences if possible. So, I told her that I would like a little bit of everything including some of the metal bits she had shared in one of her pictures, but that I also love of buttons, findings, beads, etc. After she received this notification, she asked if I had any more requests. I basically said that anything that feels rustic and old or romantic would be awesome. Here's what I received.
The inside of the box
The loose bits on the top of the package
My favorites of the loose bits: bone beads, buttons, and chain
Then, there were all these packages
and still more under the wrapped packages
I started with the smallest of the packages and discovered some of Richelle's handmade pieces. YAY!
The rest of the packages are below, first how they look piled up in the protective wrapping she used, and then all laid out for a better view.

Here's those little bits I found at the bottom
I couldn't wait to go through each and every piece in the box, so I sat down with an empty organizer and filled it right up!

Thank you Richelle for your generosity. I really think this was a steal for $20 plus shipping. Make sure to get your own totally stuffed destash box before her excavation ends!

  13. I was amazed and surprised when I purchased "my box" from Richelle to get an additional email from her asking in more detail what I would like, (very specifically), even more than the details I gave her at the beginning! Richelle is wonderful to deal with! I am even more excited to get that "De-stash Box", from her. I can hardly wait. I have never had so much fun buying jewelry making supplies . Thank you so much for letting us know about this wonderful opportunity. I could show you what I get if you want me too. Just say the word. Thanks again, Hope. Your blog has definitely become one of my favs in a very rapid way!
    Take care and have fun creating, let us know what you get inspired to make.
