Shari Replogle’s workshop on creating jewelry from vintage china allows you to get super creative. Go to a local antique store or flea market and locate unique china pieces, then custom create a mini-collection for someone you care about, with earrings, a necklace and more.

You know I have this thing (and I know many of you do, too), where I have to try every technique and product that comes down the pike. Encaustic, water-soluble pencils, batik, and more–I’ve got the supplies for all of it. Well, one product and technique I have somehow resisted is making mixed-media jewelry with resin. I’m not sure what my resistance has been–goodness knows I have a ton of jewelry findings and fabrics to work with. And I adore those bezels filled with tiny paper collages and found objects.

Inspired by RemARKable team members Tamra Davis and Laurie Krauss I finally created my first Mixed Media pieces of jewelry. I am hooked. What a great way to use up your craft stash and I love how easy Stampin’ uP!s new coasterboard makes this project. I had so much fun making them I whipped up a few for those joining my team. Thought this would be a fun way for them to showcase some of our product.

I just returned home from a mini-pickin’ trip where I happened to find some gorgeous vintage tins. I fell in love with the pattern and the color and knew the metal in these would make great charms, pendants and beads. This is a great project to begin with if you’re just starting to work with metal. There’s nothing hard about it –just jump in and Explore Beyond™.

Upcycling found objects into gorgeous new little works of art jewelry is rewarding on so many levels, and mixed-media jewelry making opens the doors to a whole world of creativity with no rules. Recycled paper, plastic, rubber, glass, wood and yes, even metal–all of these things can be reworked into stylish jewelry with just a little inspiration and know-how.

I have long wanted to blend my painting skills with my newer dimensional work in ceramics and metal. I have been toying with layering and blending of glazes, underglazes, and wax patinas, but have never been fully satisfied with this. Last week at ArtBLISS, I encountered fantastic art forms that will enable to me to create the composite media I have been seeking.
