I love weaving jewelry, and I love upcycling.
So, I have combined these loves by using upcycled elements in some really fun Steampunk inspired brooches that I have designed and made.
I weave the backgrounds for the brooches with the Schacht Zoom loom (the new version of the classic Weave It loom).
Then, using the lid and base from frozen orange juice cans, I build fab brooches.
I combine all kinds of things, like tatting, found objects, various embellishments that I make, as well as crocheted and woven wire.
This video shows how I do it.
