I just finished a necklace made from found objects. My inspiration was a couple of websites. art -e-zine from the UK and the art of Ro Bruhn from Australia. The objects are ( from left to right):
pop top and turquoise
oxygen tubing with newspaper and beads
glass fuse with copper foil and wire
earring pendant with beads
mussel shell from our pond with beads
tubing with paper words and beads
Hebrew word for life ( I think) with beads
watch part and beads
NYC subway token with beads
shrink art with digital image
tubing with transparency and beads
key and beads
heart charm with beads
22 caliber shell with beads
yardstick part with button, text, and map pin
faucet screen with beads
mussel shell and beads
tubing, newspaper, and beads
tassel made from fabric and a green tea can
all strung on tiger tail with various random commercial beads,
I love busy artwork. The more stuff, the better. Sometimes simple is good, but most of the time, give me lot's of stuff to keep the eye interested.
I will wear it tonight to a St. Patty's party. Erin go Braugh!

Love the necklace, it's amazing what you can find to hang around your neck, I'm always walking with my head down in car parks, especially near hardware stores, they have some great finds. Thanks for visiting my site.

Happy arting

Lovely work! I've used a few found items in some things I've made, but I'm just starting to get more adventurous in my creations...
