2014 July 7

Mixed Media is still a popular technique in the beading work, and since so many of us have other crafting hobbies, it is a fun way to merge those hobbies and come up with entirely new techniques and stunning jewelry.

I wanted to make a stunning necklace to showcase it but, alas, inspiration refused to come pay me a visit. So, one day I decided to wrap the donut in copper wire since I love that color combination. And then, it went back into the bead box for a while, again until I came across Erin Siegel’s beautiful necklace in a book. So, the rest of the design concept of this necklace came from Erin Siegel.

Sometimes it’s just not enough to express ourselves via one art medium, so I thought I’d mix it up today by focusing on art to wear: mixed-media jewelry. Accessories are such a personal thing—our jewelry helps to define us by showing what we like, and who we are (I usually go for earth-toned beads and feather earrings, but will sport a little timeless silver for a business occasion, for example).

Today, I’m sharing a simple sewing project made with dies and bezels from the newest Spellbinders® line A Gilded Life.  I was going through my fabric stash, much of which I inherited from my Mom.  So I combined some of the bits of lace she left me, with some scraps of muslin left over from another project.  Broken bits of jewelry were the perfect compliment.
