Wearable Art Week
I got inspired to create a few wearable pieces this week. This first piece is created from a 100+ year old leather disk salvaged from an old textile spindle and married to a brass tag with an antique etching and this unique brass and wood button.
I love the organic, earthy feel to the piece. It hints at a bit of your inner hippy but remains sophisticated enough to wear to the office or out on the town.
Just listed in my Etsy shop!
Next is this fun little assemblage necklace made from half an antique brass latch, an antique tintype photo, antique text, and little brass wings. The piece is titled "Free" and is a message of hope based on the scripture from Galatians 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery".
For the gambler, check it out on Ebay today!
And finally, a little necklace pendant created from an original antique brass laundry tag, a brass tube bead in the bali style, and a fire polished crystal. The beads swing freely and create a modern serenity to an ordinary "found" object.
Visit my Etsy shop, where you can purchase the necklace already complete for you, or buy a brass laundry tag from my supplies and create your own wearable art number!
