I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I'm having making jewelry out of trash!!!
All of you probably think I am a little demented....or that I should be on the TV show "Pickers"..... anyway... the above piece was made with junk jewelry and garbage.
Well.....I don't exactly dig in dumpsters....but I will pick up an occasional item alongside the road if I am walking.
Couldn't decide if I was going to use the above piece as a piece of art or as jewelry.....so I messed around a little with it. It is not completely dry yet...hence the white gunk on the piece.
Another one I'm just finishing up.....
An old earring...... I pounded flat and embellished with a button and some old rusty chain I have on hand.....
Here is a close up of the first piece. I've used an old levi snap....the back of a napkin ring pounded flat.....bit of old jewelry.....part of an old key chain and various beads, etc...
I'm looking at TRASH in a whole new way!!!!
LOL LOL LOL
Enjoy this beautiful weekend,
