A while back I did some posts in a series on Legendary Jewelrymakers. One of the people I featured is Amy Pfaffman, she uses interesting recycled and upsized things in her work and found objects such as aluminum knitting needles, wooden yardsticks and pencils. You can read about her on the blog, or use the "legendary jewelrymakers" tag to see the whole series, there are several.
So when I ran across Jennifer Maestre's work on Etsy, I was intrigued by her use of colored pencils to create scultures and wearable pieces.
I learned that she's using the pencils almost like beads, weaving them together in peyote stitch, to create her innovative and sculptural three-dimensional pieces. Facinating, isn't it?
In her Etsy site she has pins and focal beads for pendants made of colored pencils too, very graphic and colorful.
Aren't they marvelous? They make me smile.
