Found object hairclips! I could make these for days… So easy and fun.
These dino keychains are easy and fun too! The only thing stopping me from making a million of them is the fact I ran out of chain and haven’t come across more yet.
I’ve been having fun making new jewelry recently! When I first started making earrings and necklaces, I focused a lot on reclaiming old jewelry and using things like keys and metal washers, etc., to give my stuff sort of a modern steampunk kind of look. These new pieces I’ve made are kind of a little different- more off the wall, I guess. The found objects I’ve used in some of these are kinda funky. Here, just have a look at a few:
And then there’s the paper earrings that I’m experimenting with! These are some of my favorites. I use heavy stock paper (like postcard thickness so it isn’t all bendy and not quite as fragile as it sounds) combined with found objects. The ones I’ve made so far are really big and dangly so they really make a statement! But because they’re made with mainly paper, they weigh practically nothing, it’s so cool:
Only about half of these earrings have been posted in my Etsy shop so far. If you click on the thumbnail pictures above, it’ll lead you to the listing on Etsy if they’re for sale. If you love one of the pairs above but don’t see it listed in my shop, let me know! I’ll post it for ya :)
Found object jewelry. Yessir, I may have found my calling. I love it! It combines some of my favorite things and favorite forms of art.
Recycled, reclaimed, upcycled, multi-media, mixed media, found objects, antiqued, vintage, steampunk, industrial, metal, metalwork, unique, quirky, fun, funky… these are a lot of the tags I use when describing my jewelry in myEtsy shop.
Key, skeleton key, lock & key, washer, watch face, eye hook, pop top, paper clip, plastic toy, resin ring, keychain, swivel clip, charm… these are just some of the items I use to make my jewelry- all earrings and necklaces, so far.
And here’s some photos of what I’ve made just in the past few days:
As of right now, all of these earrings and necklaces can be found in my Etsy shop. I only just posted them yesterday! But soon they’ll sell like hotcakes! I hope…
Here’s the first jewelry sale I made! The listing was up only about 12 hours before Miss Donna bought it :) She’s my second mom and my best customer!!
I hope my new jewelry gets a lot of attention and does well. I have a lot of fun making these and I want to make more! A lot of the fun for me comes in the searching for items to use. Junk shops, thrift stores, yard sales, and friendly donations (hint, hint!), here I come!!
