Hi!  Etsy has some jewelry makers who make "wearable collages" of jewelry - brooches, clip earrings, etc.  They look awesome.  Lawd knows I have enough jewelry to recycle.  I especially want to make necklaces, but how do I put the pieces together to lie flat and stay put?  I thought about getting some screen material to glue or fasten them to, but I don't know if that would be comfortable.

Any advice appreciated!

I would use epoxy to glue things together.  Be creative, look for cuff bracelet blanks, big coins, or random pieces of metal to glue the things to.  I have some 3" plastic "tiles" I have been playing with...cutting them up, heating them up, bending them up, drillng them, glueing things to them, embossing powdering them....  I have to get some sleep, but I will try and post some pix of them soon.
