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.

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.

MENS ACCESSORIES

Well over the past two years I have been making jewellery and accessories for women, so I thought it was about time I did a range of mens accessories in the form of cufflinks.

The cufflinks were made by layering birthday cards and adding some art work to them and then glazing to protect the finished pieces.

I am reasonably pleased with the out come and the three pairs above are my favourite.

The next thing to do is to see if I get a favourable response or not. Fingers crossed.

I have enjoyed making them and think they would look dapper with a crisp white shirt.

There is no reason women could not wear these, but I don’t know if women can get blouses with cufflink cuffs.

Hope you like them

 

Recycled paper jewellery pieces

imageI love using recycled items to create my jewellery. Here I used scrap pieces of art work that were going to be  thrown away. I mount the pieces onto recycled mount board or other strong card.

The next stage is adding glitter, let’s face it you can never have enough glitter, and finish off with glazing the pieces with dimensional glue. Once these are dry I will punch holes into the ones to be necklaces, or add pins to brooches and mount the smaller pieces onto cufflinks or rings.

So for minimum expense and little effort Iwill have a lovely new range of jewellery to sell.

So excited to see the end results.
