Who doesn’t love rummaging through the recycled jewellery at second hand stores and garage sales looking for those special treasures to upcycle?

Shaman Inspired Necklace

I’ve always loved Shaman type necklaces or jewelry.  Anything grungy, earthy, ethnic, tribal….these are all words that sing to me when I think of jewelry.  I love this style, probably more so than any other but seldom create anything using this theme – well kind of, but very understated.  I’ve always wanted to create something…
