Driftwood Gallery Series
A lovely person off the northern coast of England collects beautiful pieces of driftwood and when I saw them on her Etsy.com site I knew they would be the perfect inspiration for some totally one-of-a-kind and special jewelry. My friend, Jennifer, and I thought we'd be making mostly bracelets out of this lot of pretty driftwood but as it turns out each piece has revealed a unique destiny, many as necklaces. This piece is only a small sampling of the creativity that came out of working with this natural medium. In this one, I re-purposed a thrift-store-gold-necklace-find and added turquoise and gold wire to complete the finished look. I can honestly say that I have never seen anything like this and that makes me very happy.
