Pencil Me In



I love it when an artist takes the ordinary and turns it into something extraordinary. Like Jennifer Maestre for example. She makes the most fantastic, amazing, and beautiful jewelry from...pencils. Yes, the pendant, earrings, and pin featured above are made of laminated pencils!! Each piece is meticulously created by Jennifer and then topped with a protective epoxy coat to give a lovely satiny surface. Beautifully crafted pieces that are striking, elegant, and totally unique!! I have never seen anything like this!! Now, thats something you can write home about.
