The Modella Files.
Sometimes I outsmart myself! Such is the case for the Modella Files which were born out of two proverbs. First...'Necessity is the Mother of Invention' and secondly, 'Make Do and Mend'. So successful were the recycled file folders, skirt hangers, and scrapbook papers in catching the attention of folks at 'First Saturday at The Chicken Farm Art Center, that the Jewelry became secondary.
That's okay! It was a great conversation starter. I am always pleasantly surprised how many people are into recycling and making do with what they have. Talking about the Modella Files was a great opener for sharing how my 'Vintage To Vogue' jewelry is made, where it comes from, and that it is also 'Recycled-Renewed-Repurposed'.Sims Fiber Arts Studio in a space about 6x8 feet. An ironing board that is NOT used for ironing clothes makes a great table/counter.
A Christmas Ornament Tree makes a perfect hanging display for jewelry
and a Lazy Susan makes it viewable all around.
I have to say though, that my favorite and most attention catching display is my
'Dressmaker Form/Jewelry Model'...Jewel Modella!
She never said a word about standing in the hot August Sun all day long.
She is a Jewel!
