I love to upcycle and use broken jewellery and all sorts of broken and found bits and pieces in my buckle and key necklaces and my hanging hearts. I hope to be adding canvases soon aswell.
This is one of my key necklaces.

Don’t know how “ethical” this is, but I couldn’t part with these pages from a vintage rag book, and made them into tote bags…(and I already had the fabric from another project…)

My grandmother had lots of tablecloths and napkins like this. I think she may have bought them on holidays abroad. Not sure what happened to them though, they are probably stuck at the back of my Mum’s airing cupboard!
