Recycled paper cufflinks
I 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.
I am please with the outcome and like the richness of the colours. The gold accents brings warmth and glamour to the pieces.I also made a range in sea greens which I love.
They are quite chunky but I think why not make a statement!

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

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
I 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.
