'Vicious Circle' (reclaimed toys in jewelry)


In another experiment in recycled/reclaimed materials I've used some toy army men and linked them together with silver jump rings to create this bracelet called "Vicious Circle". I'm vehemently opposed to the US war/occupation in Iraq and found this piece to make a great anti-war statement.

Jewelry really is such a wonderful medium for self-expression. It can be a statement about politics, beauty, wealth, poverty, the environment, sexuality...the possibilities are endless! Plus it isn't just something you hang on the wall but something you can wear anywhere at anytime.
