Retro Repurposed Bracelet

I like to create jewellery that is different and which doesn't conform to traditional notions of beauty. I use retro discarded items and refashion them into layered interesting jewellery pieces. The pieces basically evolve and create themselves.
The journey begins with repurposed 1960's children's jigsaw puzzle. Similar colour tones placed together and pieces are sealed with a clear varnish. 1970's furnishing fabric encouraged to fray and are turned into the backbone of the bracelet. Old necklace chains are then sewn onto the fabric. this bracelet is finished with a ribbon tie.

I really like what you are doing here! Up-cycling in unique ways is so cool. Using something that is overlooked and brought back to a beautiful life is worthwhile.
