~ Altered Jewels ~

" Yes, this is a necklace...."
" Opened"

" Closed "

" Small watch gutted and a sweet photo added.."

" Old pocket watch revamped. Yes this too is a necklace...."

I am the first to admit that I love jewelry, but never wear it. So you can imagine when I came upon this altered jewelry a few years ago how addicted I became knowing full well I don't wear necklaces. I simply got hooked on this artists altered jewelry. Her name is Kristen, and although she is not making jewelry that much any more, you can understand why I got hooked. She has the wonderful ability to match old pieces of jewelry together and create one of a kind pieces with her artistry. I especially love the lady photo where she has embellished her, and so lovingly finished the back of the necklace as well. Her specialty used to be creating awesome necklaces out of old watch cases. Imagine how much work has gone into these pieces, not to mention the fact that she had to come up with these ideas herself. I admire her and her work. See for yourself and maybe you can get inspired from these pieces......
