It's one thing to repurpose all sorts of materials for jewelry making. It's another to make said jewelry really, really good. One outstanding and inspirational artisan is Victoria Tane who I discovered when she started following me on Twitter.
Her artistic flair and creativity is outstanding. How does she do it? Victoria says, "I never look at the way things are. Rather, I always look at the way they could be." And these are invariably unique and delightful. The design below includes leather eyelets from a defunct suspender factory teamed with Home Depot fencing wire, old pewter castings and glass beads.
Her commitment to the green movement is real. She and her husband travel to several fine art and craft shows in the US each year in a solar powered restored vintage Airstream trailer! Check out her blog. One useful post explains how one can determine the "greenness" of eco jewelry. Victoria is also the inventor of the patented Headbenz adjustable headband or choker jewelry.
