Well, today I stretched my wings a bit. Or is it flexed my wings? Well how about, stepped out of my artist box? I have had requests to make collage jewelry for my Etsy shop. I never really had a desire to do so, but I must remember to create for others and not so much myself. I am not the type that would wear a brooch or necklace, but they are out there, so I know some do. Anyhow, I received an antique manicure set from my friend Rayann, in a bundle of vintage jewelry...and I looked at it yesterday and my muse tugged at me and I thought "why not". So this is my first attempt at an altered necklace. It was fun, and if I again find something to create on....and my muse is with me...I might just do it again.


  1. Kathy...this is your FIRST attempt? Wow, the necklace is fantastic! I think you have a feel for altered jewelry. Keep up the good work.

  2. Super job, Kathy! My friend,Sandy, is always trying to get me "out of my box". Occassionaly, I step out of it and find it refreshing. You should do some more jewelry. I think you've hit on a winner.

  3. Wow, this is just wonderful! Love it! :-)

    Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  4. I went back to look at a few posts I had missed, and as ever everything you do is really fun. I really like this neckless, you are so talented.
    It has been a busy summer, but I have done a few things. Hugs, mary
