Intertwine, Intermingle, Intermix

I'm continuing to blog the alphabet, and today we're at the letter I.  I is for intermingle, intertwine, and intermix.  Let's see fun, sometimes disparate elements coexist in the same piece.

Here's one of my listings that intermixes hard and soft, fabric and chain, and the masculine and feminine.

Here's another necklace from my Etsy shop that intertwines the hard and soft.  In this case, it is felted wool balls and brass chain.

Here are listings from other Etsy artists that intermix, intertwine, and intermingle....

This skull intermingles both the bright and the dark.  We wouldn't have this bright, colorful piece without the death of the majestic animal.

Here we have a lovely landscape encased in beeswax peeking through wood that used to be a barn.  We have all of these disparate elements intermingling in one piece.

Here's a listing that takes pieces from a vintage clock radio and turns it into jewelry...  intermixing the functional and practical turns pretty and fun.

Monster Mash intertwines classic characters into one crazy-scary super monster!

Here's a listing that intermingles the old and the new.... vintage feel with new technology.

This bracelet intertwines the complementary colors orange and blue.

This has been fun to scratch the surface of those listings that intermingle, intertwine, and intermix.  I hope you've enjoyed it, too.  Feel free to leave a comment on this entry or ideas for the J entry in the comments section.  Thank you for reading!  You can also find me at, on Facebook at, and on Twitter at
