So I just got back from studying abroad in Rome and I picked up some jewelry supplies while I was there. Here are a few things I've made!


In this one the center part, which I think was to cover a drawer where the handle would go, is the piece I got in Italy. The rest of the parts are found materials that I picked up once I got back.



I got the center ring in Rome, in the Porta Portese flea market (it's 2 miles long, it was one of my favorite places in the city haha) and the sea glass in the bottle is from my trip to Positano.


The keyhole in the next one is also from Porta Portese and the beads are from an old bracelet of mine that broke. It's inspired by the keyhole on the Aventine Hill.. when you look through the keyhole in this old door you have a breathtaking view of St. Peter's Basilica through the garden behind the door.

The first is definitely my favorite.

It has almost a steampunk-ish flavor to it.

Well balanced and unique. Love it!

Very nice! I like the keyhole necklace, and the story behind it, especially.

Lovely pieces!

Love the first and last, but the middle one strikes me as something I would actually wear!
