Welcome to Duct Tape and Denim

Welcome to Duct Tape and Denim Handstamped Jewelry collage for home page | DuctTapeAndDenim.comWelcome to our website!  Duct Tape and Denim is my small handmade business devoted to creating and hand making unique, personal, and hand stamped jewelry here in the USA.

My jewelry is available online in my Etsy shop, in some local shops and shows that I do myself, and in small boutiques across the country.  I also love doing custom work so please leave a message if you would like me to work on something for you.

I have a hard time restricting my creativity to just jewelry, as you’ll see if you read my blog.  So I’ve created tabs in the menu above for my other creative hobbies such as painting furniture, crochet, cooking, repurposing vintage, and more.

Please come join me in my repurposed life!

***NOTE: I’m doing a little ‘construction’ here on the website so please excuse the mess!***

    I have a question about using Minwax rather than wax after painting with chalk paint. I did my dining room hutch and wonder if the whole piece needs sealing or just the top of the buffet part and the shelves? Those areas will get the most wear, right? Thanks.

      Hi! Thanks for your question. I’ve always sealed all of my pieces. You do need something more than wax on pieces that will get a lot of wear and may have food spilled on them. I learned this the hard way. I know CeCe Caldwell sells a product called Endurance. I’m not sure what the other companies sell. If you use the Minwax Polycrylic like I do I would test it on a small area of the back of the hutch first. It will change the color of your paint. Usually making it darker and richer. And if you want to distress it make sure you do that before sealing. Good luck. I’d love to see a picture when you’re done!

    I’ve finished the piece. Am sending the before & after photos to your website. Hope they come through OK.

    I wrote a children’s book about George Ferris, inventor of the Ferris Wheel and would love to have a pair of Ferris Wheel earrings and/or pendant to wear during school visits. I saw them featured on Pinterest but can’t find them on your site.

    now I can’t find the photo of the earrings. It would be fun to have ferris wheel earrings that turned. Is that possible?
