Altered ART Handmade Designs - Recycle and Reuse Vintage Jewelry for One-of-a-Kind Jewelry Boxes and Picture Frames
inJanuary 26, 2011 - 11:57am
You can create your own embellished Jewelry boxes, Bottles, Picture Frames, and other one-of-a-kind designed gifts using the the idea of 'recycle' and 'reuse'. Your mantra being, "Never throw away anything!" Finally, a use for all that broken jewelry, one of two earrings, or jewels gathering dust.
Why not take one of those JAPAN vintage metal footed jewelry boxes and embellish it with an earring placed in the center. Then surround it with rhinestones and small enameled flower scatter pins. The inside is already lined in red velvet. A perfect unique gift !
A vintage picture frame also works perfectly for this type of project. Get creative and use an assortment of materials, such as large enamel flower pins, which work great as an accent. Once you choose a frame, build your design and color scheme around it. A discarded vintage book also works in this project. Find a suitable old picture or photo and place in your frame. Or you may want to choose a precious family photo and build your design around the subject!
You may have all the vintage materials you need for your projects, which means little, if any, cost to you. Be creative, and remember recycle, reuse, go green, and create a one-of-a-kind gift for someone special - something 'new' and different - a treasure sure to please.
