Not been here in a while and I'm needing your help.
For part of my HNC in art (at college in Scotland) I need to produce a piece of conceptual art. I've decided to base mine around 'recyclable recycled jewellery'. So I'm calling upon any upcycled jewellery makers for their permission to use photos of your designs on inspiration sheets in my sketchbook, you'll be fully credited in the sketchbook and I'll post pictures of sketchbook work, don't want you to think I'm stealing your designs/ideas! (that would be really mean!!)
The idea around this theme is to create a collection of jewellery form recycled materials which in turn could be recycled again, ie, a wear once paper necklace made form recycled paper (newspaper/magazine etc) which can be recycled along with other paper products.
I hope you guys can help.
I have a bunch of recycled jewelery projects so check them out. I have the spoon pendant,a recycled bealt from garbage bags,paper necklaces...
I have made a can tab bracelet, but that's about it. There are some really cool recycled jewellery and things like that on Deviant Art, even things like a dress made out of caution tape (http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=caution+dress#/d2xw0y9). I love looking there for inspiration
i have stuff on my site you can use
I have stuff you can use to.
The Antagonist is recyclable and a I made explore compostable jewelery in the future
google John Grade for some interesting conceptual ideas
Violetta - I'll have a look around for your projects
Lisa - those beads are really pretty. I've never seen cans woven like that, that's pretty sweet!
Debs - Everything is fantastic! I wish I could sew and make like that! I googled John Grade, he has some pretty fantastic stuff, I think I'll use him as one of my research artists!
Thanks for your permission to use pictures, it's much appreciated
John Grade was taught by Cheryl Johnson who gave me Em ,my Mermaids, face as a trade for some wool I'd hand dyed.How lucky am I.
Good luck with the assignment.
