Since I have some time off from classes, I’ve been working on new jewelry. All my most recent creations have been bracelet sets, partly because I like wearing tons of bracelets together. I also like the challenge of designing multiple pieces that aren’t exactly the same but still fit together cohesively.
I usually use some re-purposed beads in my jewelry. These come from broken strands of jewelry that people give me, damaged antique/vintage pieces or mismatched components that I buy, and sometimes older pieces of my own that have broken. Recycling cool components into new pieces of jewelry is my favorite part of the process.
Here are some of this week’s creations, available for purchase in my Etsy shop!
