I've been captivated by altered art. It definitely takes a lot longer to make pieces and requires a lot more artistic mindset, but the result is a truly unique, one of a kind piece. Not for everyone, of course, but that's why I make so many different types of jewelry.
Here are two pieces I just completed. The chains are brass, and the charms are made from everything from an embellished guitar pick to keys to buttons from my vintage button collection.
