The jewelry I make is inspired by a love for scavenging vintage treasures, especially small trinkets. Originally collected for use in my mosaic projects, some of these tiny treasures had to be made into wearable art. Because these are found objects, every piece is one-of-a-kind, made from vintage and/or newer repurposed jewelry. Occasionally I will use connectors, chain and beads that are new, as the design or strength of the piece requires.
Earwires are always new, either lead and nickel free or stainless steel.
