Have you ever looked at junk or steampunk jewelry and thought “I want to make one of those”?
I do every time I see them on Pinterest, so I decided it was time to try making one of my own… my own way.
It was so much fun! I’ve always had tons of junk (obviously!) so I had a lot of things to choose from.
I started with an old zip as the base. Then I began building on it using old bits of jewelry, buttons, beads, a tiny spanner, rusty safety pin, bits of chain… even a rusted through bottle top… all kinds of things.
(I really am a magpie!)
Its not just a necklace, its a piece of art! I had it entered in the Salvaged Art Competition last month but before that I had it hanging on the wall and it looked great.
