AND YET ANOTHER GREAT RECYCLING ARTIST

I am constantly surfing the net admiring the work of artists that are able to create fantastic works of art from recyclables. To take something that would normally be discarded and turn it into a work of art is a talent that always amazes me.
Recently I came across an artist, Jeanette Jansen, that takes items such as hardware parts, discarded watches and turns them into assemblage dolls. Assemblage dolls are exactly that...dolls created by assembling various materials together. Here is one of my favourites.

This particular doll is made from a vintage furniture hardware part and her legs are from wire. A watch face is in her center and a tiny Gruen watch vial hangs from her wing. Her face is enclosed within a watch crystal. She is available for sale at Jeanette's ETSY shop.
This next item is one of her assemblage pins. It is made from recycled items including an ornate button, watch parts and an antique safety pin.
It too is available for sale at Jeanette's ETSY shop.
