My Updated, Upcycled Jewelry Chandilier
My light fixture goes with my shower curtains now because the jewelry on it is from the same women as the hankerchiefs were. I spray painted it with rustolium hammered bronze. I restrung 3 diffenent stone chip neclaces with glass seed beads on beading wire and wrapped the center pole and the arms with a different color. I added neclace swags using old family jewelry and topped it off with Eastern Star earrings that were worn by the past 3 generations of women in my family.

Kelly S on Feb 19, 2014I do too. Every time I look at it I remember the women who came before me. My high school senior key is in there too.
Kelly S on Feb 19, 2014I've seen the Christmas tree made in a picture frame using jewelry as the ornaments and garland. A shadow box is just a deep picture frame so I was thinking of gluing or wiring the jewelry to a picture frame back. Then make a shallow box to fit the picture frame, put the glass on and the back on. Sounds simple but taking the time is always the hard part.
