Spring Recycled Jewelry

I have an obsession with Jewelry and constantly changing the items that I already have. Recently got inspiration from Jewelry made from old computer parts and watches and thought I could do the same. Mine turned out great, but I used old beads,paper,leather and bottle caps. Here is what I started with...
Then I cut a piece of purple leather so it fit nice and snug inside the cap and then filled it with beads and Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. Let it cure and I have a new Spring Pendant!
It looks like a Mosaic in Turquoise,but really some leftover beads. I was so pleased on how this turned out that I decided to make a few more pendants but with other materials.
For this I folded some Vintage book paper into a pinwheel. Dipped in fabric stiffener and then used mod Podge Dimensional Magic on the top and added a silver bead. So easy and I just love this with the black cording. I have so much paper left that I had to make another pedant.
This time it was leftover Scrapbook paper,book pages and a large washer. I think I like this one the best since it is big and bold! Now I have three new Pendants that did not cost me a dime since they were all made from recycled materials! Enjoy!

  3. I just posted about some charms and mentioned that I have some of the dimensional magic but haven't tried it yet, now that I see your beautiful charms I think it is just like the glaze I have used. I love the pinwheel, what a great idea! xoxo
