New Altered Jewelry

journeyI have always had a love of vintage things…not just old photographs, but paper ephemera, such as maps, old children books, magazines with interesting advertising, to postage stamps from other countries. I have a collection that I started years ago, and I am glad to be able to find a use for them…wearable art.

postaromina2While wandering the antique store the other day, I spotted a beautiful Mah Jong game, still in it’s original box…full of gorgeous wooden game pieces, just begging to be altered 🙂

These will be up on my Etsy shop shortly…so stay tuned for these and other wearable art creations!
