Remixed Jewelry - Upcycle Recycle Style

I've been busy making jewelry over the past week. They were refashioned out of beads, vintage jewelry, liquors labels, belts, purse chains, skeleton key part, and key hole plate. The most unique part was my use of a destroyed vintage Christian Dior suitcase. I call these pieces REMIXED...as I redesign the findings for a unique outcome.
Please enjoy!
The Bourbon Street Necklace. I paired beads, a birdie charm, a metal liquor label and crystal lettering to make this goreous piece. The chain is from a vintage Art Deco purse clasp (the purse part had been removed).

The Elegant Long Black Velvet Purse Necklace. The tiny purse from the doll section of the craft store was paired with a very long vintage necklace. This is quite the conversation piece; simple yet elegant.

Two of my favorite; The Key Part Necklace and the matching Key Plate Bracelet. The necklace was fashioned out of 2 vintage necklaces. I added a skeleton key part and chandelier crystals. The bracelet is a mixture of 2 necklaces, (one of which was used in the previous design) a keyhole plate and a bead. Many common everyday items can be transformed into beautiful pieces of art.

This is one of my most unique pieces of work. Iwas created using 5 different parts. I used 2 non matching chains (one is beaded), a barrette, an earring and a bead. I love how it all works together.

Finally, I made my 1st bib necklace. I call it the Floral Bibster. It's base is made from the Dior bag I cut up (only after it was alread maimed), silk flowerers, rhinstones from a broken vintage bracelet, velvet ribbons and a very eighties gold chain belt. The final reulst is a cute lightweight necklace.

Just for kicks I created this piece for the love of Jimmy Fallon's song.. "The Jet Blue Song: The Ballad of Steven Slater". I don't condone what the former Jet Blue Flight Attendant did... but the song was funny as heck! LOL HIS & HERS "get two beers and jump" Resin Necklaces.

Although I LOVE to create.. these items are for sale as well. Please check out my byABPryor Etsy Store.... or my new blog Usable Art for Sale! for unique, fun gifts! Thanks

That girl, Ang
