Re-Imagined Items

Upcycled purse

 

When it comes to my hands-on artistic endeavors, my passion is to re-purpose items from found things, ranging anywhere from old Barbie findings, broken watches, tossed jewelry, to fabric and leather scraps. About the only consistent theme in my work is that the items have been re-imagined from their original use— refashioned or repurposed into something new and different.

I’m all over the place when it comes to my creations, and I have to plug Pinterest for the many wonderful ideas I find. I’ve got my own Pinterest that shows some of my successes, and below are photos of my creations,  which I sometimes put on my Etsy site, Nostalgia Reimagined.
