I'm finally making jewelry again after how many years—22. Holy crap how did that happen!? Wow. Time doesn't just fly, it reaches warp speed apparently. Back in art school I didn't always have the funds for copper, silver or gold, so I had to get creative with more affordable materials. There was a great family owned lumber suppy where I could get scrap brass, plexiglass and formica for practically nothing and so my dabbling with upcycling truly began a loooonnnnggg time ago. Here's a recent pair of earrings and my new DIY display case. Screen + picture frame + hot glue = pretty. For the time being, items will be sold in local boutiques, but my goal is to have an Etsy shop running by November.
