I know most people like to purchase brand new items for their homes, gardens or gifts.

There are a few people like me who love all items with a back story, a former life.

So it is with my jewelry creations, paintings, and garden art.

For me, there is a certain type of beauty in the found and forgotten items lurking in a junk drawer or discovered at a flea market.

What will you do with your grandma’s buttons? Mine end up in a junk chime.

  • I love these, Teri! Half the fun of seeing clever creations like these is identifying what the various parts used to be. I love the idea of “jewelry” for dressing up the home and garden. Such a fun way to use vintage items and to be able to see and enjoy them. And I totally agree that items with a back story pull people in to find out more about the repurposed creation! Thank you for sharing these with us!

  • Thanks Rena and staff for providing a place for (unique?) jewelry like this!

    JMJ is a wonderful place for artisans and crafters to experiment and grow while recieving great encouragement and exposure.

    Teri, Great pics and great use of odds and ends! I’ve been stock piling my own stash of bits and pieces to do wind chimes/fan pulls etc and you’ve given me a few more ideas 🙂
