Repurposed Inspiration: BANGLE Bracelet Art

bracelet feature

I love purchasing jars of junk jewelry at Goodwill.  However I have come home disappointed the last few months as I stopped into many Goodwill stores and the glass counter didn’t have any of those tantalizing jars. Finally, last week I scored!!!  My eyes popped out as I saw two jars chocked full of  treasures and I didn’t have to think twice if I wanted them.  When I got home it was so fun to dump the contents on the table and sort.

When I had the pile of bangle bracelets I thought it would be fun to experiment with making a pretty piece of art

Two of the bracelets had pretty beads secured to the outside so I used glue to attach some beads to two of the silver toned brangles.

I played with the design using interesting pieces from the junk jewelry jar.  Then I decided on the acrylic paint color and covered a 10 x 10 gallery wrapped canvas with two colors of acrylic paint.

After everything was glued down with E6000, the title dawned on me….”Second Chance”  and this junk jewelry is definitely having a second chance!
