Creative Blogger - Heart On My Sleeve

Yes, another featured blogger from my group Creative Bloggers. This time a jewelry designer right up my alley Heart On My Sleeve. Be sure to check out her blog. She remakes and fixes old jewelry. Take a look at what she has done to this old leather bracelet.

Old bracelet
Remade into these wonderful earrings.

She's going to be able to get a lot of earrings out of that bracelet. So, this has given me the idea to make these earrings to go with the leather necklaces I've made. Here are the necklaces....don't you think they would go great together?
I'll have to get right on that after all the other things I had planned for today. Never a dull moment around here. My sister-in-law wants me to make her a hipster bag for an I-Pad so I really need to practice putting in a zipper. My new best friend is the seam ripper...LOL. I haven't done zippers in quite a while and most of my bags have the magnetic clasp. I'll post pictures when I have it completed.

Happy Monday!


  1. Those earring by Cate are a great idea, and your necklace is a nice addition.

  2. Love what you did with your leather cord! We all inspire one another--that's the way it's meant to be! Your necklace looks like some things I've seen that go for a ton of money. (in the Sundance catalog, for one.) Granted, they might be made out of gold, but sometimes they aren't.

  3. Love the way inspiration travels around!! Great idea :)

    Isn't it great to take something old, that might never be worn again, and turn it into something fresh and new? Whether its re-purposing, re-cycling or up-cycling, it's great to bring something back to life again!

  5. What a great idea to make earrings from the old bracelet. How creative!
    I'm not too fond of putting in zippers either, but a zipper pouch wouldn't be a zipper pouch if it didn't have a zipper!! LOL

    p.s. thank you so much for your nice comment on my blog!
