More on Mixed Media Jewelry

27 Feb


I mentioned in a previous post that I'm a fan of mixed media jewelry. While I know I have a mixed bag of jewelry lovers here, some who make it and some who love it but don't necessary make jewelry, I thought I would still pass on the news – I've just agreed to write another jewelry book for Rockport Publishers, and this one is, you guessed it – on mixed media jewelry. The title will be Making Designer Mixed Media Jewelry.

You can find a complete call for entries posted here: Call for Entries.

If you are a jewelry artist or know of someone who might be interested, feel free to pass on the URL above. To give you an idea of what we are looking for, here is a brief excerpt:

"Projects should be constructed using basic jewelry findings, simple wire-working techniques, or put together with threads, fibers, leather, etc. Projects should integrate current, original, and exciting techniques and unique and interesting materials. Projects must be achievable by a home artist. (The book will not cover hot metal techniques such as soldering, casting, or anything requiring complex metalworking tools. It will also not include polymer clay.)

We are seeking projects in the following categories:

  • fiber and fabric jewelry
  • paper jewelry
  • found object jewelry (incorporating recycled/found materials)
  • jewelry featuring unique and/or unusual combinations of materials (bones, shells, glass, wood, beads, chain etc.)
  • memory jewelry (incorporating photos, charms, imagery)."

Pictured is an optical lens pendant created by mixed media artist (and web-buddy of mine) Cyndi Lavin from Mazeltov Jewelry.
