I'm having such fun discovering new types of jewelry to amuse myself. Right now, I'm all agog about recycling and re-purposing jewelry.
Last month, I snagged some donated and unwanted jewelry at the Gardiner Library. Not much to look at, but I thought I might have some use for it. When I got home, I rummaged through some other discarded jewelry given to me over the years, and I saw some possibilities for combinations.
So... into the bath they all went. You'd be amazed how dirty old jewelry can be! Once spiffed up, I took it all apart and began the process of reconstituting things. Sweet!
Love this one. Cat's eyes, a beautiful large shell, some silver borders and a lot of dangles. I can hardly wait to see who wants to walk away with it.
Still on the theme (and using some of the same beads), I ended up with a wood pendant combined with more paper beads.
I can't wait to see what old jewelry I'll come across next. Let me know if you have any jewelry you don't want anymore. Who knows how it will turn out?
