Jenny Doh Fundraiser

Jenny Doh, the lovely creator of, has created a fundraiser for a wonderful cause, A donation of $25 gets a family safe water for life - the details are here.  She has also invited everyone who donates to send her a handmade accessory, with which she'll pose in the dress she has committed to wear for an entire year for this cause.  I don't normally make art to wear, and I didn't think she'd want to hang a canvas around her neck, so I figured I'd dig through my mixed media stash to see what I could come up with. This is the result...

It started out as a pin, but I was afraid it would be too heavy, so I made it a necklace. I used an old game chip as the base, a rusty metal piece not sure what it is exactly, an old knob, a piece from the inside of an old pocket watch and beads. The piece from inside the watch amazes me - it's carved with a beautiful ornate pattern and it was from INSIDE the watch. They sure don't make things like they used to.  Anyway, it's kinda funky, but I had a lot of fun making it, and hopefully Jenny will like it.


  1. It is funky! A really good kinda funky!!!!

    I agree they don't make things like they used too.


  2. This is really beautiful! Funky, yes, and unique and vintage-y and the texture and warmth are wonderful. It would be a pleasure to wear.
