Although I've never really created anything I'd consider as assemblage, I have a few odds and ends laying around: vintage costume jewelry from my mom, a few skeleton keys, frozen Charlottes, old foreign coins, beads, buckles, buttons (since I ordered a few for Cindy Wimmer's Button Swap, and A LOT of old tiaras from my girls' pageant days...maybe enough to make a few pieces? I just might give it a whirl.
From the examples below, what's not to love?
And no assemblage post would be complete without a few from the queen of assembled jewelry...Deryn Mentock! Her work mystifies me...no matter how many times I drool over it!
So, while I stink at assembly line production work, maybe I'll take to assemblage a with a little more tenacity!
