Jewellery Elements in Mixed Media Art


Using jewellery elements in mixed media art opens up a range of exciting opportunities to add shiny findings and lovely coloured beads.

To start with, you will need some pliers and wire cutters, a hole punch and eyelet setter. While you are getting started, buy gold or silver findings that will cover a range of projects.

Using these findings require a new set of skills that need practising. Jump rings are round metal findings that  connect all sorts of elements together in your projects. They come in many colours and sizes. The key to using jump rings is how to open them; the skills for using a jump ring are easily learnt and make your life much easier when adding jewellery elements to your work.

Once you have mastered these basics, you will be ready to start this Mixed media Wall hanging with jewellery elements.
