In The Studio: Turn It On

A few posts ago I mentioned that I will be selling my jewelry at Junk Jubilee Jingles in Des Moines, Iowa in November. I’ve been spending a lot of time in my studio and one of the materials I have been using in my designs for the show is industrial faucet handles. Today I want to show you a couple of necklaces I created.

I like the chunk factor that they add, as well as the industrial feel they have. Balancing the crustiness is a vintage button. Though you can’t see it in the photos, the button has an inset mirror to add just enough sparkle.

I gave this one a patina, which I like with the coral and wood beads. The words “open” and “close” add a bit of whimsy.

  1. Hi Ann,
    I like the metal button you attached to the center of the faucet because I like the way you mix something elegant with something industrial. Great creativity!
    I wish Des Moines was a little closer to where I am so I could come to what sounds like a great show.
