The latest additions to my collection of upcycled handmade jewellery are long, elegant mixed media drop earrings. So far the range includes unusual drop earrings made with green and gold safety pins, beaded pastel safety pins, some delicate vintage button and peacock pearl creations and some with copper and creamy buttons. I think my favourites are the ones which use everything - safety pins, buttons, pearls and three different kinds of upcycled chain, all on one pair of earrings.
For the tea-lover in your life (and who doesn't have one of those?*) the Unexpected Boutique presents a collection of quirky handcrafted tea-themed charm necklaces and bracelets - check them out over in the teapot jewellery collection.
*If you actually don't have a tea-lover in your life, and feel you are missing out, buying and wearing a piece of teapot jewellery yourself will no doubt attract some, and remedy the situation immediately.
