Chipboard Jewelry


Charlotte and I attended a class recently where we made jewelry....I'm not a "regular" jewelry wearing person as I wear the same gold earrings every day....even sleep in them! So I'm not sure what prompted me to sign up but I'm glad I did now, as I really love the look of this and will probably wear it when I put on my "grubbies"....it's just grungy looking and fun! There isn't much to it except painting the cardboard (pounced on acrylic paint in metallic colors) and gluing & wiring on whatever little goodies you have on hand. The piece with the couple on front is actually a little book of black pages. Three of these pages have pictures of vintage children on them. Of course, they must be the couple's children!
On to my next project....it's in my head. Now to get it from there to reality!

Hi Pat,
I thought I would stop by and visit your blog. Your work is amazing!! These jewelry pieces are wonderful.
I have to ask you though about your journals, they are absolutly gorgeous!! I would love to carry these in my shop (Fleurish), and I was wondering if you wholesale these to shops, and if so what you would charge? Email me, if you get a chance.
Thanks!
