Years ago I dabbled (quite a bit) in jewelry making. Especially altered jewelry, made from unusual finds, vintage trinkets and interesting aged objects. Then when everyone and their sister learned how to assemble jewelry, I tired of it and went on to mixed media and collage (hmmm, come to think of it, my mixed media is made of unusual finds, vintage trinkets and interesting aged objects, too!). Occasionally I still like to dabble a bit, especially if the jewelry is made of old tintypes, sparkley rhinestones and buttons. Here are a few new "old" pieces I put together for my Etsy shop, and for some local shows I am doing this month.
My name is Carol and I am an addict. I cannot get enough of things of old..... buttons, lacey things, rusty musty things, bits and bobs all which make up my creations. I would consider myself a self taught multi media artist, but all of my things have this in common... my love for nature, animals and anything vintage. I am married, mother of 4 children, residing in a 120 year old Victorian home. My idea of heaven is spending time with family, and even more so if we are at "B's Nest", our 80 year old log cabin tucked in the woods of Northern Michigan. Favorite hobby is (as always) my love of animals, antiques and vintage finds, and currently creating things for home, family, or etsy!!
