Beloved Vintage Necklace

Beloved Vintage Necklace

After years of painting and teaching mixed media, I find myself using some of the same techniques in my art jewelry work. I work intuitively and become inventive as I go along. I like to use whatever is in front of me, in this case a pile of old jeans.

The necklace titled Beloved Vintage, was born from from some of the jean scraps. The focal is layers of denim and cotton fabric, painted and stamped using acrylics. The stamped image is from my own line of rubber stamps. Attached to the focal is a faux ivory cabochon from my pile of treasures, along with a heat colored copper leaf, beads, and wire motif. The neck band is a plethora of glass beads and denim faux beads. Holding everything in place is a piece of vintage lace…a great thrift find.

I do workshops throughout the country, if I happen to be in your area, stop by and say hello. Or, email me if you have questions, I answer all my mail and would love to hear from you.

Thank you Rena for the lovely comment. Yes, I use whatever is in front of me that does not move. I just posted a cuff made of Paper Leather on my blog. Hope you like.

Hi Cory,

This is gorgeous! I absolutely love your use of mixed media – I find it very inspiring. You’re definitely right in going in that direction with your jewellery. LOVED the Destiny and Desire piece you submitted last time too!
