I have always admired people with unusual ideas. They liven up my brain and ad a flame to my own thoughts. I think that is what they call INSPIRATION! Take for example Valerie of Additions Style. She is a major inspiration for me not only because of her typically awesome Motivation Monday blog posts but also because of the incredible way in which she combines her skills as a jewelry artist with a totally unique, modern way to make them - using hardware instead of gold and silver!
In Valerie's etsy shop you will find a unique collection of jewelry and accessories made from recycled, upcycled and repurposed hardware for women and men. In her own words:
My whole design process was recharged that day and I realized that I could create jewelry that looked like silver, using hardware to make it affordable. Since that day I have found great resource for recycled hardware to create the jewelry and accessories in the collection. Working with the hardware has been inspirational for me. I get new ideas all the time and creating is exciting.And to get a feel of her gorgeous works, this week you have the chance to win a stunning set of steampunk earrings and a necklace from Valerie's etsy shop!
