RECYCLED PAPER JEWELLERY

IMG_0057I have been making jewellery from recycled paper for a while and had offcuts of painted surfaces that I didn’t know what to do with them.

So after lots of thought I decided to us them in a paper mosaic and then produce brooches from the designs.

IMG_0056I am please with the outcome and like the richness of the colours. The gold accents brings warmth and glamour to the pieces.IMG_0058I also made a range in sea greens which I love.IMG_0052

They are quite chunky but I think why not make a statement!IMG_0062

They are all available of Etsy.

NEW VENTURE – ON LINE SELLING etsy

Today I have finally jumped into the unknown. I have been creating jewellery using recycled paper and card and seem to have amassed quite a collection. Which raises the question “WHAT SHALL I DO WITH ALL THIS JEWELLERY?”

Etsy!! well that’s what everyone tells me. So after a bit of persuasion I caved in. I have to say with great trepidation. Will anyone like my work? Will I sell anything? Will people think I am showing off? Is my work any good?  etc

Well I have done it now, so Revolution Crafted Jewellery now has a home in Etsy but I couldn’t use my chosen name because it was to long. I go under the name Revolutioncj – which I don’t like. So do I change the name to something else? Oh I just don’t know. I think I am going to suck it and see.

Wish me luck, I hope I don’t embarass myself. But nothing ventured nothing gained.thumbnail_RevolutionLogo-Final

Handmade recycled paper necklace with original artwork

Made by using recycled greeting cards laminated together with pva and decorated with original artwork cut down to shape.

IMG_1522Here are a range of brooches and necklaces made in the same way using different shapes to add interest and style. Worn with scarves, beret, collar or on a lapel they look lovely. No one else will have the same item of jewellery which is a nice thought, who wants to look like everyone else.

Yupo paper and ink

Playing with new materials is always fun. Yupo and ink is new to me but many seem to have been using it for a while. I thought it looks easy but I was wrong. Learning how the ink is going to react can be fun but also frustrating. I have made some interesting surfaces that I have started to use for jewellery and I intend to make some trinket boxes.

So back to the joy of the unknown, if you haven’t tried yupo and you love to experiment with art give it a go.

What wonderful colours, I feel inspired to create a painting of this view, or maybe a textile piece. I never can resist stopping the car and pulling over to take photographs that inspire me to be creative. Sometimes it’s worth taking a moment and being thankful.

Another area of natural beauty well worth getting in the car for and donning on walking boots to recharge the old batteries. I would imagine when snow falls this view would be outstanding. When you are a the top it really does feel like you are on top of the world.
