I haven't done a post on upcycling for a bit. Let's take a look at what some crafty people are doing to upcycle jewelry and different items into jewelry.
I'm always amazed at the creativity out there.

It takes a creative mind to fashion jewelry out of colored pencils. Lidia and Paul of zincwhite came up with the idea of using artist waste for making jewelry. The rings and brooch above were made using rejected color pencils from the Derwent factory. The pencils are combined into a block, then cut and shaped.

I like the vintage charm of this upcycled necklace and think the blue enamel brooch adds a very nice touch.

This etsy seller uses vintage stamps from all over the world and uses them in bracelets, necklaces, brooches, rings and cufflinks - a great idea!
