Assemblage Art from reclaimed wood and rusty junk hardware



Angel Trio

These are my “Angels of Reclaim”.

This is my second project Beckie at Roadkill Rescue has been kind enough to feature. Click the button and give her a shout-out.

Collecting old hardware, blingy jewelry, rusty tools, junky stuff, and reclaimed wood is one of my favorite pastimes.

Coming up with creative projects where I can use my finds sometimes gives me a headache.

I’ve written posts about my Hardware Christmas Tree and some of my other Junk Creations, but I haven’t made any Angels of Reclaim in several months….ok….maybe it’s been over a year.

assemblage art angels

I’ve been putting these Angels together for a few years now and when I find time to sit down and go through the crates of hardware I enjoy fitting the pieces together.



My granddaughter Tenley and the “Angel of Style” she created today.

She helps me out in the workshop when she’s at the house and she is very creative.

Tenley went through my hardware stash today and put this Angel together. I drilled the screw holes for her but she did the rest. I think she’s got me beat. I love her Angel that she dubbed “Angel of Style”.

Isn’t she just gorgeous.

Tenley took this photo with my new Canon Rebel T3.

What about it guys.

Do you like our Angels?

Thanks for stopping by,

    Kathy, I think these are amazing. I envy your hoard of hardware and your ability to put it together. Wow.

    Adorable! Love these guys. What a wonderful way to bring something old back to life again! Popped over from Serenity Now. :-)

    I love your angels and trees!! I have been creating my junk angels for years and I love seeing your take on the same craft, and the junk you use. Some of mine I do on old boards and some I create from rulers. I come home from my walks with my pockets clanking, full of rusty finds. A potter in the antique mall I have a booth in makes tiny faces for necklaces and sometimes I use them for my angels’ faces. I am happy I found you! I had no idea about Roadkill Rescue, and now I’m in a bit of trouble with Beckie…lol I posted my comment on her blog before realizing my mistake…oops! Apologies. Junk on! Vicki

    I was just snuffling around for visuals and came across your recycling. Yes, I still call it that! I love your simple touch. Your pieces are charming. I have been putting together every one else’s throwaways for years. They used to laugh and now they ask for them! Keep up the wonderful work.
