Ocean Waves and Sunny Skies. Summertime is for the Blues
It's one of my favorite concepts and it guides the discovery of unusual, nostalgic, sometimes odd, and always charming printed images that I up-cycle into wearable works of art.
The images in these pendants are sourced from salvaged books, vintage dictionaries, out-of-date calendars, old greeting cards, and other printed materials that have been diverted from the waste stream.
Each pendant features the original source material ... I don't make copies or shrink down the images. It's the image, just as it was found, judiciously cropped to frame it and re-contextualize it as a pendant necklace, bookmark, or keychain.
Using only the original source material also means you get a one-of-a-kind piece .... it's a tiny little work of art that expresses a bit of your own personality through a connection with images that evoke memories and fond associations.
