Colored pencils are a staple item in every elementary classroom and preschool cubby, but as it turns out there are more uses for colored pencils than simply coloring in the lines. Czech artist and jewelry designer Anna Čurlejová likes to think outside of the box, and as a result she has uncovered a way to transform colored pencils into fashionable jewelry.
You might have some ideas in your mind about what colored pencil jewelry would look like but Čurlejová defies all expectations. Her work speaks for itself, and she has also won a few awards for her creativity; she took home third place for a logo design competition in 2007-2008.
The artist is constantly seeking ways to get more out of her art. For instance, between 2012 and 2013 she participated in the Erasmus program at the W. Academy of Fine Arts, located in Lodz, Poland.
Anna Čurlejová is now selling her unique collection of colored pencil jewelry on her Etsy store. Her prices are pretty affordable, ranging between $19 and $30+. If you fall in love with any of the pieces you see below, which you are likely to, you know where to buy them!
