Making little collages into jewelry is like wearing your heart on your sleeve...only better...it's wearing your sentiments around your neck. Eye candy for the soul...
Today, Sally Jean creates her Vintage Art Collage Charms in her Portland, Oregon studio in the heart of the art-friendly Pearl District. Preferring to work from home, the downtown studio allows her a place to keep the beloved "clutter" she uses in her artwork. It is filled with the things she loves...jars of broken jewelry, drawers of knotted ribbons, stacked antique ledgers, Lucy (the lighted goose) adorned with her candy necklace who keeps a watchful eye on all the goings-on and Stinky, Sally Jean's handmade chubby cat, who keeps Lucy company.
Sally Jean's Philosophy: Do what you love....and she does.

The Art Project is a collaboration between Google and 151 acclaimed art partners from across 40 countries. Using a combination of various Google technologies and expert information provided by our museum partners, we have created a unique online art experience. Users can explore a wide range of artworks at brushstroke level detail, take a virtual tour of a museum and even build their own collections to share. With a team of Googlers working across many product areas we are able to harness the best of Google to power the Art Project experience. Few people will ever be lucky enough to be able to visit every museum or see every work of art they’re interested in but now many more can enjoy over 30 000 works of art from sculpture to architecture and drawings and explore over 150 collections from 40 countries, all in one place. We’re also lucky at Google to have the technology to make this kind of project a reality.
