Sweet Salvaged Designs.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I make many OOAK jewellery pieces using vintage and mixed metals like copper, nickle, brass and steel. I like using rosary beads, MOP pieces, old brooches, medals, lockets and various found objects for whatever I think works best for the particular piece I am working on at the time. You can see me at the Kalamunda markets, held once a month on the first Saturday of each month and various other venues that I will post about. You may email me at quilt@touch88.com.au for any inquiries.

stacked spinner necklace, project 1.



I have just joined Deryn Mentock's summer jewelry project, this is a challenge to work through all the projects in Mary Hettmansperger's book called "wrap, stitch, fold and rivet". this is my first piece I made using copper, old tin, clay cross and angel wing. This was fun and I look forward to doing the other projects.

The wing on the front of this piece was a great touch. I am looking forward to seeing your next piece.
