Oldies but Goodies - Upcycled

Another week, another Jewelry Artisans Community Oldies but Goodies Challenge, this time with the topic UPCYCLED. That means that part of the piece is not a normal jewelry component, they are also called Found Objects.
Buttons, shells, sea glass, watch parts, keys, tile pieces, flatware, porcelain shards, deco objects, marbles, there is no end to the possibilities of working with those things, and here I'll show you a few of them.

  1. One of my favorite pastimes is figuring out how to use found objects in my jewelry designs. My current obsession is buttons, but I'm always on the lookout for unusual things that will work in jewelry. Because of that, I really enjoyed this challenge, especially seeing how other designers used their found objects.

    Thank you for including my elephant button ring in your featured items this week, Cat!

    1. I think this is a challenge we could easily repeat, I bet there are more pieces waiting to be shown!
