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.
I finally got to finish the hidden faces skull plaques today. They have been made by using recycled cards, magazines, beads etc. I have hidden faces from famous paintings in them, which gives them a strange appearance.
I really like Frida Kahlo and the festival of Day of the Dead and decided to create these plaques. There is plenty room for improvement but as a staring point I think they are good and I can see where the improvements are needed if I intended to sell them.
