Old Postcards, Stamps and Magazines Reused in Jewelry

By: Katie Cordrey (Rockstar) Feb 7, 09

Advertisements and society illustrations from 1930’s newspapers found in the artist’s kitchen walls, vintage Japanese postage stamps, hand-colored French postcards, and bits of antique lace are all components of the artful jewelry from Minnesota artist Jaana Mattson of the Applied Arts studio.

Each piece of jewelry is a unique creation that uses recycled elements in addition to soldered sterling findings and chain. Many of the items are reversible, giving the wearer dual options.
