Are you inspired?  My favorite is the photograph wreath.  It would be a great idea to pull out old Christmas photos and collage them into a wreath.

Featured In The Des Moines Register Today

Tricia Hall
Tricia Hall repurposes various items to create jewelry. / Special to the Register
Tricia Hall Vintage No. 35, Des Moines
What she does: Repurposes “junk” by creating one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry from rescued vintage and salvage items. Hall began selling her “junk finds” on Ebay in 2005 and created Vintage No. 35 last fall. A stay-at-home mom, Hall was looking for a hobby, as well as a way to make a little money. She not only found a successful business, but also an entire community similarly interested in finding new uses for old items.
“The ones who inspire me are my junkin’ friends who are passionate about rescuing and repurposing their finds so other people can love what would have been thrown out in the trash,” says Hall. “People who purchase my products love the repurposed look and the fact that it is one-of-a-kind. One special order that stands out was a memory necklace I created for a mother who had lost a child.”
