La mer - The Sea kit by Marie-Ange-the-Celt La mer - The Sea kit by Marie-Ange-the-Celt
A earrings and necklace kit.

This one is special: some of the wire work has been done with the wires that tie toys to their box (dolls, figurines, etc.). Those are covered with a white plastic. Since recycling them is an obscure thing (recyclable plastic ? metal ?) and that I didn't want to throw them away, I formed different living things you can find in the sea. I did a bigger view for each of them.

Otherwise, there is purple copper wire, glass beads, a pearl... one metallic clasp and silver plated earrings.

For both jewels, it was an 8 hours work.

I always save those binder ties and use them to secure extension cords, bundles of string, the tops of trash bags, etc. Never thought of using them in art! :thumbsup:

I wish I had had more, so I could make them more evident in this.

Sure, you can think of lots of uses for them ! :D :hug:

Thank you!

I admit I mostly wear the earrings. The necklace was a nice challenge but the earringsare far more simple for everyday :)

Yes, totally understandable that you don't wear the necklace every day:) Beautiful work nevertheless:)
