Jewelry is made with personal recycled artwork: paintings, photographic transfers, inkjet photographic prints, collages, etc. Each individual piece is one-of-a-kind. Materials may include: gel medium, photographic transfers, and photographic prints on various types of paper, etc. Colors vary based on each individual piece of artwork. Recycling is the key- I utilize as much recycled and found materials to create, display, and package designs.
