Heather Skowood

monopoly brooch
I was thrilled to be contacted recently by Heather Skowood who invited me to submit an image of a piece of my work for a book on found object jewellery which is due to be published this year by Stackpole books.The piece she chose is `Monopoly brooch` which I made using origami techniques from a travel Monopoly set that i found in my loft when I was making a start on clearing out before moving house.
Heathers work is absolutely stunning,she makes Art jewellery and jewellery from recycled/found objects.I hope anyone reading this will click on the link to visit her website and blog.
I will post an image of the brooch shortly,it can also be seen at, its for sale!

New necklace based on an experiment I did a while back.
Initially I intended to make a bracelet but i didnt have enough pages.
The book used is` Little yellow digger`,all the pages have been used and threaded in page order.
Other materials are seed beads,wooden beads and pewter.
