Announcement   Looking for recycled artist designed retro style jewelry as well as funky art pieces and even light switch covers? Welcome to Jools For Fools where you can visit for as long as you like and you don't have to really be a fool to buy anything! Actually, fools historically were highly valued and most royal courts employed professional fools that were sometimes called "licensed fools". In societies where freedom of speech was not recognized as a right, the court jester - precisely because anything he said was by definition "a jest" and the "uttering of a fool" - could speak frankly on controversial issues in a way in which anyone else would have been severely punished for. Monarchs understood the value of having such a person at their side. So, in keeping with controversy, foolishness and wicked jest, I present to you my jools.
Each piece starts with an object that I like that has been picked out of my many boxes of valuable junk. An idea or story forms and the search is on for other pieces to be added to it. No pendant, bracelet, brooch or art piece is ever duplicated due to the scarcity of the materials and also because they are all meant to be one of a kind. Please visit my other shop called cheryholmes for canine related art and also crackerjackcollage for mixed media art work.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs costs.
Thank you for stopping by!

I can't describe how much I love this bracelet! Interesting and varied dice and makes a great sound when the pieces click together. Very well made, arrived promptly and just as pictured. Highly recommend.

Perfect bracelet for all of us who are rooster crazy! But, you don't have to be, because no matter what you are crazy about, you can find it in this shop--extremely creative artist with a sense of humor. Truly one of a kind. Highly recommend.

Gave this bracelet to my daughter who is a musician and guitar player. She was thrilled. The items in this shop are wonderfully playful and fun. Very creative, inventive artist and the jewelry is truly one of a kind. Highly recommend!

Because the charms are large, they make the bracelet diameter small. Would like the option to add an extension
