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 contactacted the seller to ask if she had anymore of these cameras in stock (just plain, w/o stickers and charms on it), but she did not at the time and she said she'd look for more when she's out and if she comes across any, she'll let me know. The Seller kept her word and contacted me within a couple weeks and informed me that she found more cameras and had picked them up for me. I am SO GRATEFUL she hasn't fogetten about me and that she went out her way for me. These cameras Sold Out years ago in my State, so I'm glad I was able to contact her and she was willing to help me. Great Seller and Great service and Thank You Seller!
