Things made from things…

Yesterday I found 2 amazing examples of objets made from vintage jewelry.

Exhibit A:

This person on Ebay apparently makes floral/botanical collages on velvet. This floral bouquet is gorgeous. So Victorian.

Exhibit B:

Rebecca Purcell.

Here's the thing about Rebecca Purcell. I have owned her book Interior Alchemy for almost 2 decades now. I think I bought it at Barnett Books, this overstock book store in Wallingford… I was so entranced with her style of decorating, her use of vintage objects, and layering of materials. Years later, I found out that the book has cult status and ABC Carpet is a big deal. Eileen Fisher's Pinterest account just posted a series of her necklaces composed of vintage jewelry. Delve into Rebecca's world— and keep an eye out for her upcoming book.
