Camera Jewelry Created Using Old Broken Photog Equipment!

I make my Camera Jewelry by disassembling old, outdated, and broken cameras. I select any piece that I find visually exciting and use them to make my upcycled jewelry.

Have an old, broken, or outdated camera? Turn it into outstanding Camera Jewelry!

First, disassemble old, broken cameras and sort the parts by their type: type: gears, rings, by color, prisms, silver parts, etc. Then I select engaging pieces and combine them with other elements until I get a composition that satisfies me. The final stage is gluing the parts together. Because the parts are different metals and sometimes glass, I cannot solder or weld the parts together. To date, I have made pendants, earrings, rings, magnetic pieces and other non-jewelry items. If you don’t want to create any yourself, you can check out my Etsy site too!

Camera Jewelry can be made from virtually any interesting part of a camera that you like!
Even the rings and buttons for the settings make unique and visually appealing jewelry pieces.
