New Life – Upcycle

So my Mom found a bunch of my Great-Grandmother’s or Grandmothers (not sure which)  broken jewelry to take apart and make into new creations. I am super excited to upcycle them into incredible pieces. It remains to be seen if I will be able to part with them, hahaha. Here is a picture of some of the new parts I get to work with 🙂 The white necklace in the second picture I am going to basically take apart to put it back together almost exactly as pictured, I may or may not put my own twist on it, but it is so gorgeous I can’t wait to wear it out! So here is the before shot….will post the “afters” as they are executed.

The picture below is from my photography project – project 365 (take a picture every day for a year)….If you want to see any of the other project pictures, they live at this link: http://public.fotki.com/aameri/my-albums/photo-projects/project-365/?view=roll

DNA Pair of Earrings

Click on the pictures they get bigger!

Price: SOLD!

I think it goes without saying that we all know I LOVE these earrings. They are definitely not the original idea for the DNA earrings I had in my ever ambitious mind but they are adorable. Also, most people won’t understand what they are, so they can act as a conversation piece or a way to weed out the people you DON’T want to talk to. hahaha. OK, enough of that. These nucleotide pairs are on the same earring post instead of being side by side because since they will be seen basically independently of one another, it didn’t make sense to have the matching bases be on either side. OK, enough rambling about why the pairs are where they are……

Originally I was attempting my hand at some serious wire work for these. I wanted the nucleotide pairs to be side by side (as they should be) within a double helix wire structure. I don’t have the right wire or I don’t have right hands, either way it didn’t happen as I was planning. So these came into being. They are made from letter beads and a pretty black metal star-burst charm hanging from the bottom. I will continue to try and make the double helix because eventually it has to work, right??

What a huge explanation for a small pair of earrings, I can’t help it, the dork in me just wrote this post.

Just for illustration of what a total dork I am, here is a photo from my 365 project; this is where I am sitting now and every time I am on my computer this is my view.
