From Trash to Treasure

upcycling jewelleryMuswell Hill based painter and jewellery designer Alexandra Abraham has had an interesting year, creating a limited edition of one-off bangles for leading American retailer Anthropologie and travelling extensively to Vietnam, Canada, Norway and France. She has also shared her passion for mudlarking along the Thames Foreshore in a short film which can be viewed on her website www.alexandraabraham.co.uk 

Using lashings of 23 carat gold leaf, Alexandra up-cycles found and donated objects such as Thames Foreshore blue willow pattern china, old foreign coins, sea glass, pebbles, vintage buttons, ancient clay pipe stems, shells, faux pearls and beads into paintings, jewellery, chargers and napkin rings.

upcycling artistEverything she makes is a one-off and she has recently designed a range of pendants featuring upcycled faux and freshwater pearls, old clay pipe stems and tiny vintage silver charms. High quality archival pigment prints on canvas of her paintings are now available to order at very affordable prices.

Alexandra’s work has been exhibited in Istanbul, Shanghai and Los Angeles and has appeared in the July edition of Pride Magazine, www.departures-international.com, American Express Platinum Cardholder’s online magazine and in Everythinginmyhousemagazine.com. Her bangles will shortly be featured in IMAGE, the Los Angeles Times fashion supplement, which can also be viewed online.
