I am from Newton, KS and have been creating recycled jewelry since 1994. I use antique & vintage objects in my designs. I manipulate these items using solder, wire, cold joining, drilling, & metal forming. My desire is to take this "old fun stuff" and re-imagine it into wearable art!
I create deconstructed and reconstructed compositions incorporating vintage buckles, buttons, costume jewelry and found objects. My techniques are grinding, soldering, cold joining, riveting, resin inlay and hand tooling.
