Fun fact: Rice Freeman-Zachery (http://www.voodoonotes.blogspot.com/) started an Altered Artwear group on Yahoo sometime ago (www.groups.yahoo.com/altered_artwear). Since becoming managing editor of Altered Couture I joined the group and am so very impressed with the discussions and postings.
Some cool projects that have been tossed around are re-working jewelry for either Altered or Jewelry Affaire. Here's some of the pieces the group has been looking at to re-do. I challenge you to join this group, participate, and submit.
Show me what you got!
