Mixed media is a fun way to pull in your other craft hobbies to your jewelry. Quilting, polymer clay, metal, chain, leather, resin and fibers. The possibilities are endless. And there’s no right or wrong way to do it. Just follow your imagination and creativity.

What do you get when you start with some interesting art fibers, then add a chain and some pendants? It’s the perfect recipe for a statement necklace with gypsy panache! This piece attracts endless compliments. You can find art fiber strands in various places online ( is a good source), by searching for “art fiber” or “art fiber bundle”.

I have been working on a necklace that is inspired by a nature themed art journal page I recently made.  The process of art journaling has really inspired my jewelry making lately. This knotted bead will be the focal point of the necklace I’m making.

This is probably the biggest and most inclusive category of posts that I have to share with you.  You will find that there is some overlap between this list of mixed media and recycled jewelry and some of the tutorials that have been assigned to other categories.  Well of course…it’s unavoidable!  If a project uses found objects and bead embroidery, it will inevitably show up on both the mixed media list and the seed bead list.

I recommend making this DIY chunky necklace over a few days or a week. Make a few pieces at a time because there is a lot of dry time involved. It’s nice not to pressure yourself to make it quickly because a little time and reflection can you lead you to the aha! moment about your design.

Turquoise Dreams Mixed Media Necklace Tutorial Mon, 21 Apr 2014 20:06:36 -0700

I purchased this large turquoise donut and then it sat in my blue bead box for a long, long time. 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.
