Memory Necklace using heirloom pieces

This customer had a stash of old jewelry, a watch, coins, and even a little photo-pin that were combined into a wearable heirloom. Wire wrapping holds some items, others are combined with epoxy. It's fun to find ways to combine items that fit together, like a coin set inside a hoop earring. This is a great way to wear those precious bits of history you cannot bear to toss, but are completely unusable except as memories.

 Unlike many artists, most of my art is made for the simple joy of the creative process. While I'm certainly inspired by everything I see, I'm not very deep - my jewely is not talismanic, carries no special  meaning or message. After trying to make things I hoped people would buy, I have decided to just make what I like, and see who else does too. Anything with a hole in it is a bead; If you can poke a needle or a wire into something, you can put beads on it; the more sparkle or rust, the better; never throw away old jewelry, beads, ephemera, wire, ribbon, fabric, leather or tools. Oh yeah, I also love wire, metalsmithing, polymer clay, resin and fabric....and food.
