The results are as varied as the influences; tag books, bottle cap jewelry, journals, shadow boxes, shrines, works to commemorate special occasions or themes such as family history, weddings, etc.
In my case I use photos and collages, together with antique earring and pendants pieces as well as glass and lucite, to make unique and one of a kind jewelry. I've been on a romantic kick lately and have done several pendants and necklaces with a Parisienne theme. Pictures of the Eiffel Tower, cozy french cafes embellished with Swarovski crystals, vintage lucite beads, and flowers, etc.
I am also doing a series of Old Hollywood Glamour, that will feature legends of music and silver screen. To the right you can see some earrings I made with portraits of Jean Harlow. I am also doing some wonderful cuff links for the guys with glass and portaits and record album covers of musicians and singers of the 40s and 50s like Frank Sinatra, Glenn Miller and Louis Armstrong.
Remember, the Holidays are fast approaching and these would make wonderful gifts that will surely be cherished for a long time.
