Lost object art. Why is it called that?
I like to think of it as Found Object Art :-)
Here's one of my favorites. Garage sale repurposed chains, beautiful vintage buttons, crystals, soldered scrabble pieces (those are fun to keep from burning when you are soldering them!) and one very special piece of my baby's picture done with my first attempt at metal clay and resin!
I'm said to say that I don't think these pictures really do it
justice. It sparkles and clatters when I wear it and I just adore it.
