Junk Jewelry Score #1

Seeking old/broken jewelry for reuse!

Huge score with this assortment of vintage, broken and junk jewelry from a friend in Somerville, MA.

Here’s the trade agreement: a big bunch of old/broken/out-dated jewelry in exchange for one finished necklace made from the pieces (as well as other things I have laying around).

This awesome trade has crystal chandelier teardrops, funky vintage wood slice beads, bejeweled buttons, some old chains, two 70s looking clay earrings and lots more!

Junk jewelry for upcycle necklaces - 9000things

Junk jewelry in ombre pink and gold - 9000things

These vintage faded pink wooden beads, when arranged from high fade to low, make an ombre gradient that will make a nice one of a kind recombinant necklace.

UPDATE: Here’s Amanda’s finished necklace made from some of the things she gave me!

Remix Necklace from old and broken jewelry | 9000 things

This box of goodies had a lot of loose beads, vintage buttons and silvertone chains. The jeweled leaf on the left hand side is a piece from a vintage bracelet. The blue and green beads and the clear button with the crystal were all in there too!

Instagram Hacks: #FourQuestions_freeforall

@FourQuestions started a freeforall contest on Instagram with actual prizes and everything! Today is the last day, but check out the photos and the rules on their website. I’m totally obsessed with instagram hacks right now, so I’ve entered the following six edits based on others’ photos:

Collabs are with @tylerforesthauser @stevenromo @stacyreneee @krischanstclair

As an aside, I’m thinking of taking the concepts I’ve been working on here to make postcards to sell, so let me know what you think is working, and which ideas I should ditch. Thanks!

Instagram Hacks: #TylerForestHauser_freeforall

Instagram has spawned a super fun project medium called the #freeforall.

Instagrammers post a handful of their unused photos on the internets for downloading and you edit them and post them to IG with the appropriate hashtag. @tylerforesthauser started one of these a little while ago and his gorgeous photos make it way too easy to make pretty things. Here’s his website with downloads and instructions.

And here are my edits. (waaaaay too much fun…)

More on instagram.
