Upcycled jewelry project

Posted by satomikawai in finished Jewelry

Here is my recent jewelry  project.

I have kept a couple of purses which were used to be my grandmother’s.  I initially used them, but they became older and I was not able to use them as they were.  Then, I decided to use her purse as an art material to make jewelry.  That way, I can keep her sweet memory for good.  I even share my femininity with other people.

I combined the upcycled leather with my slip-casted porcelain tubing for the series of jewelry pieces.

I made a special package for this project.  My printing artist friend, Amanda Macuba helped me to make screen-printied package.
