But what's inside.....?
O, and I am wearing a necklace I picked up from a vintage shop in Dunedin in 1989.
I know nothing about it, but it's heavy and unusual-that's my bag, baby!
The frock is from the Retropolitan garage sale the other day, and the earrings are from Turkey.
I like to be a bit crafty, nothing too flash, just re-making things mostly. Every now and then I get a bit funky, and the middle pice is one I made. The circle is made of Fimo modelling clay, with some plastic bits & fine glitter, and the Ganesh pendant I picked up in Thailand. I used some beads from my bead stash for the rest.
The one on the left is a frame picked up secondhand somewhere, with a fave Fragonard pic inside, covered with resin, and the beads are 2 cheap beaded necklaces from an Asian shop.
The one on the right is a pendant from Thailand with re-strung beads that in-laws Simon & Mariko bought back for me from Africa one year
The key I found a couple of weeks ago, the chain came with the heart in the middle-bought at Wyrd, a sadly long gone shop-the pendant on the right is made of bass strings and metal and is by Violet Fagan, an artist who runs a vintage shop in Dunedin. I bought it off her in London in 92.
Left is a secondhand frame with black fimo and an old earring stud embedded in it.
Centre top is a secondhand red tigers eye pendant with a little dangle from some other bit of jewellery.
Right is a frame from a junk shop on the Nevada/Arizona border with a cameo bought in Greenwich markets.
Bottom is a 70's pendant, opshopped somewhere here or Aus, can't remember!
Left is a swordfish eye pendant made by some artist from a former collective called The Mermaids. Bought about 18 years ago.
On the right is the one I am wearing in the pix.
Phew-and that's just the tip of the iceberg!!!
More to come....another day!
