Let's get creative! Jewelry isn't always metals and gemstones and mixed media is a fun, artistic method of creating unique pieces. Also called assemblage art, mixed media encompasses and incorporates various materials (not necessarily those originally menat for jewelry use but such materials as ephemera, paper, found objects, etc.) to create eclectic and textural art jewelry designs. The wide range of mixed media techniques can include glue on projects with small bits of art or fused glass, photo memory jewelry, crafting with resins and inks, paper arts, trendy styles like steampunk that use watch parts and Victorian ephemera, collage jewelry and more.
