Found Objects + Jewelry

November 30, 2010, 10:13 am  Posted by Lark

I have a drawer filled with little things I can’t bare to part with, but don’t really have a home elsewhere. Lost pieces from a game, campaign pins, special stones, dice, prizes from cracker jacks, stray pieces of jewelry, buttons, gumball charms, Indian head pennies-all end up living together in that drawer. I go through it on occasion and check in on all my lovely finds. Yup, still keeping ‘em. I’ve seen some excellent examples of these little, lost, miscellaneous pieces incorporated into jewelry. I love that it gets them out of a drawer and in to view. Check out this imaginative jewelry that celebrates precious odds and ends.

    Thank you for sharing the love of found objects. It is my pleasure to feature them in pieces of jewelry. It makes me so happy to build a home for a lonely earring or squished coin. It was a lovely surprise to find my necklace in your collection.

    great collection! I also have so many tiny things that must be worn…someday…

    wow, great finds. Sometimes these collections can look a little bulky but done with more subtly and modesty look quite stunning and fun. That is also my personal style of jewelry but still this concept is marvelous, i know many of us have accumulated gems we would love to turn into wearable art!!

    I too love adding the unexpected to my jewelry. LOVE the piece with the tiny book and little red car.

    Thank you so much for including my piece! I love the challenge of taking those little odds and ends, which I like to call ‘junk drawer treasures’ and creating something fun to wear.

    I’ve been absent for a while, but now I remember why I used to love this web site. Thanks, I will try and check back more often. How frequently you update your web site?

    great issues altogether, you simply received a new reader. What might you recommend in regards to your put up that you simply made some days ago? Any sure?
