      Just when I finished decoupaging my new mannequin, Tara Mackey contacted me about modeling my original handmade jewelry for me.   I thought this would be a great opportunity to get some awesome photos; see my jewelry come to "life" and to show people how fun my upcycled bobby pin jewelry can be!   Tara is a talented model, photographer, singer and songwriter and has a new video, Visual Exchage
