We all have them...those bits and pieces from the past...keepsakes hidden away in a drawer somewhere. We love them and can't seem to part with them but we keep them concealed from our view. Those trinkets bring fond memories and need to be used...worn to help keep that little touch of nostalgia present.
My jewelry is a reflection of my love of romance, family history, bits of vintage treasures with a little added bling. With this in mind I sometimes dig through those treasures to create a piece of jewelry for myself that can become a family heirloom. Wearing them gives me comfort and brings back pleasant times.
These are a few of the necklaces...
And finally, the piece that started my jewelry making. A bracelet with my grandchildren's pictures.
Do you have collage jewelry, memory jewelry?
I would love to see it!
