Is this necklace cool or what!? Yesterday, we just had to go to the "Two Friends and Junk" roadshow at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center in Joplin, MO. There were many vendors with a modge-podge of everything. It was jam-packed, and of course, I believe "more is more", and I was surrounded in it - it was good. We inched our way through the crowds, although easily distracted by shiny things, to find "Kristin's Laboratory". There we found our friend/customer/instructor, Kristin Girard's repurposed booth loaded with one-of-a-kind mixed media jewelry. There I purchased the necklace above, which is repurposed from overalls. Giving new life to old materials makes this a fun and unique piece. I know the amount of time and thought that goes into Kristin's jewelry, and this piece makes me happy!!! Kristin, you score phenomenally high on the creative-o-meter!!! You can find more of Kristin's work here in her Etsy Store.
