Glimpse the Past

One of my jewelry design loves is up-cycled vintage jewelry. Technically, to have the label “vintage” an item must be at least 20 years old. Repurposed vintage jewelry joins both past and present by using some vintage elements along with modern ones. Because vintage items have often become one-of-a-kind the jewelry made from them also tends to be highly unique.

Because of my interest in finding ways to reuse vintage findings, my interest in plastics/resins also took off. I am very interested in learning how to work with resin. I would especially love to read The Art of Resin Jewelry by Sheri Haab. However, I first need to work through the billions of books and DVDs I have marked with ideas to try!
