by Kris. (Ontario, Canada) For this particular piece, I used bronze and black colored enameled copper wire. This is a soft copper wire that is coated in a layer of colored enamel. The coating is flexible and durable and the wire while flexible enough to work with easily holds its shape. I used a tight 6 in 1 link which creates a solid yet flexible weave for the … [Read more...] about 6 in 1 Link Gothic Choker
by Maryanne Murphy. (Atlanta, Ga) This isn't so much about the piece of jewelry, but why it was created. We are in the hot August dog days of summer. School has started here in Georgia and Labor day is just around the corner. There's something else that's just over the hill too.

by Nancy Vaughan. (San Diego, CA) Here's another bracelet that began as an experiment. The initial frame started out as a series of tall loops placed fairly close together. The next step was to weave wire between the loops and make a grid pattern. I knew it would be a bracelet but wasn't too sure how to finish it. I watched it for several weeks waiting for … [Read more...] about A Checker Board Bracelet
by Nancy Vaughan. (San Diego, CA) Originally the circle section in the necklace started as an experiment. I wanted to see how a small circle would look inside a larger one that was part of a continuous group. When I finished with the experiment I put away and promptly forgot all about it. A couple of weeks ago I was going through a box of samples and found the … [Read more...] about A Circle in a Circle

The … [Read more...] about A Link in Time

by Ann McIntyre. (United Kingdom) Working with different materials gives you the inspiration to make something out of nothing. All these items were mostly from 1950s - 1960s era loose beads, broken chains, just an old collection of vintage gems. I think the most important thing about upcycled jewelry is it is so unique. When you put your creativity to work and … [Read more...] about A Mixture of Earrings and Other Recycled Jewelry
