Upcycled Jewelry by Petra Hofmann  - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

The central piece of this collage is a piece of glass from Roman time, dug out of the ground in Afghanistan.

The doll’s head, broken china, was dug in Thuringia, Germany, where “bad” pieces were thrown into big ditches.

Incorporated is a piece of real amber, and the necklace’s pearls are made in Africa out of old bottles.

An international lady that goes under the name “The beautiful Roman”.
