You Used What
by Judy Larson
Just about anything can be used to make jewelry. You just need to look at it and see it differently than what it is.
Instructions
When I made this necklace, I wanted to use ALL recycled materials. The copper chain and hook were made using electrical wire pulled from a house remodel down the block. The copper in the large flower is from scrap roof flashing from our neighbors' re-roofing project. The brass portions of the flowers came from a friend who could no longer use the casings for reloading. But the really odd items I used for the flower centers were fish eardrums. They are the otolith of a drum or sheephead fish from a lake about 40 miles south of where we live. When polished, they look almost like ivory.The eardrums were covered in resin left over from a neighbors' bar top project.
