Altered Art Jewlery
A totally new direction for me. What started as a way to share the beauty of a postage stamp collection, given to me by a friend, has become something altogether different. A few years ago my sister, Lou, got me interested in Altered Art. She makes some wonderful altered books and object d'art. I bought a lot of junk for it but could never really find my way with it and made some very horrific pieces. But things have a way of percolating beneath the surface and sometimes burst forth in a totally new and unexpected way. Such is the case with this new line of altered art jewelry, sometimes called Mixed Media Art Jewelry. I had an unfulfilled interest in Altered Art as well as a new interest in the beauty of postage stamps and voila! after a few months this new line has crawled out of the dark recesses and come to fruition. Who knows what it will become next.... that's the wonderful thing about creativity! I hope you will join me as this new line evolves..... it's always an adventure and this is just the beginning!! So whether you love postage stamps, stamp art, Altered Art Jewelry, Postage Stamp Jewelry or just found me by accident; I hope you'll like what you see!!
