I just finished watching "Project Accessory". I think it is going to be a good show. I thought it was kind of interesting how some of the designers really struggled with using materials that traditionally are not used for jewelry. It is a bit easier to use precious silver, gold and precious stones to make pretty things than household items. Wonder what will be next?

Well, it is official. I will use pretty much anything in my jewelry designs. My husband flies remote control helicopters and I took some of his used pieces and parts and incorporated a couple pieces into these earrings.
I am also working on a truly one of a kind necklace using shards of handpainted porcelain! You will have to wait to see it!

I was fortunate to have been invited by a small group of ladies to have a Maudies Upcycle party. They brought some of their old broken, unused jewelry and I had a great time "maudifying and upcycling" them into something new for them. It was so much fun.
This is one of the projects. One of the ladies had a broken watch, a pair of earrings, a broken necklace and I had a pin made of tulle.
From this collection of goodies, I maudified those pieces into this pendant!
Perfect for the Indy 500 Racefan!!!
I plan on having more of these, so if you are interested, please contact me! Groups and individuals are welcome to contact me. I will be available at the Speedway Centre for the Arts to do a Maudies Upcyle event or other venue if you prefer. Just give me a shout!
