*She's That Girl!* Altered Art Jewelry by Kelly Reins

Kelly Reins is a US based jewelry designer who owns an ArtFire store and an Etsy shop which offer a selection of high quality Handcrafted Altered Art & Jewelry. She also has a blog by the name aLtErEd ArT Jewelry by Kelly Reins. You may follow Kelly on Twitter here.

Here are some of my favourite items from her Artfire store:

To compliment the images Kelly has creatively used various shades of blue glass, acrylic, and porcelain beads. There are also many gorgeous charms: enameled inlay dolphin from Greece, pewter mermaid with long flowing hair, and a mermaid riding a dolphin.

These dainty little earrings are perfect to wear for anytime. They are very light weight. The ear wires are nickel-free metal. The flowers are acrylic and each flower has dangles of sparkling Swarovski crystals.

Marilyn Monroe personified Hollywood glamour with an unparalleled glow and energy that enamored the world. She dominated the age of movie stars to become, without question, the most famous woman of the 20th Century.

This pendant
is carefully constructed using an ivory colored domino as the base. Detailed images are printed on high quality photographic paper. The images are then coated with resin that is very durable, waterproof, and has a high gloss finish.

Trick or treat! Sounds familiar? Halloween is just around the corner! To celebrate this spooky holiday, Kelly is hosting a Halloween Altered Art Charm Bracelet Giveaway Contest on her blog. You can win an altered art Halloween charm bracelet (shown below) from her shop.
