Tag Archives: Archiepelago Jewelry by Liz Juneau

I love making mixed media jewelry. These necklaces combine African crested porcupine quills, spent bullet casings, rough stones, various fossils such as shark vertebrae, agate, and jasper beads. Each one is unique due to the variation in materials. I named them Warrior Necklaces!

I wanted a memento of the places we traveled on vacation, so I designed my own Vacation Charm Bracelet. The elements include a wine cork from a bottle of Luna Vineyards Sangiovese from Napa Valley. I cut the cork in four parts where the letters were stamped on one side, LUNA, and the date, 2008, on the other. I modpodged the same letters and numbers to the flat side of the cork pieces. I added a medal I purchased from Mission San Luis Obispo de Toloso, one of the many missions we visited in California.  Then for color and to represent the different scenery, a shell bead for the beach and jasper beads for the mountains and forest, as well as Globe turquoise for the Southwest and the desert. A motorcycle charm seemed a fitting finish. They dangle on a sterling silver link chain.
