Jewelry from Found Objects

So it is almost two weeks since we began our adventure in upcycling. With the holidays coming, we issued ourselves a challenge: no purchasing items to make gifts or new craft projects. The rules are clear: use up what we have and use as many found objects as we can. We can repurpose, recycle, upcycle or otherwise reuse old stuff. We can sift through the recycling cans of neighbors, friends and even readers. We can incorporate craft materials and outgrown or broken toys from the toy box, but the goal is to solve jewelry making tasks every day using found materials.

Everyday we are publishing a new jewelry project made from these found objects on our new blog called New Jewelry a Day.   Of course, what we have in and around our house and studio may not be in yours, but we hope our ideas will help stir your creative thoughts.

Here is a list of jewelry projects from found items to date:

Copper Pipe
Elastic Hair Bands
Riveted Scrap Metals
 Steel Wire
Here is our score card to date:
Day 12. Week 2. Jewelry from Found Objects.  $ spent: 0
New Jewelry a Day.   Join our adventure.
