I ONLY SHIP TO PAYPAL ADDRESS SO PLEASE UPDATE BEFORE YOU PURCHASE :)

HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD and NASHVILLE! I have been fortunate to spend several years adorning celebs such as Rosario Dawson, Danielle Colby, Fergie, Jessica Alba, Christine Lakin, Kelly Monaco, Regina King, Marissa Miller, Shannon Elizabeth, Jolie Fisher and Anne Heche to name a few.

PHILOSOPHY:
~~~~~~~~~~
The triviality of adornment is not lost on vanity. It is an affirmation of ones self worth! Many souls have shared stories of how a piece of jewelry opened doors to conversation... CONNECTION...opportunity! Voila... isn't that why we are here?

ME:
~~~
Having always been a dreamer spending my school daze elsewhere whilst smiling, seated, and upright as not to disturb the class. My work has evolved from this very habit. Daydreaming and doodling my way through my life. Never content with the status quo I choose to change it or escape it entirely.

I am grateful for:
Tinfoil microphones
Mom's home sewn 70's wardrobe
Etch-a-sketch
Mary Mark's painted piano keys
Prior Lake with her endless supply of agate
John Denver
Dad's talent w/ wire hangers
My first pocket knife
Being a Mom at 20
Painting paper towels w/ Grandma Keltgen
Words
Grandma & Grandpa who exemplify true love
Great teachers
Inside out grapefruit & graham crackers in milk
Making a living with my hands
Our family motto "Normal is boring."

~You may rest assured you are buying an original design by the original artist.

~I do not use any chemicals, plating (aka:antiquing, paint, acrylic, enamel), glue, epoxies, solder or toxins of ANY sort in my product line.

~My trademark Virgin Bronzed brass is 100% nickel, lead, and slavery FREE.
**** Caveat Emptor...It simply isn't true that ALL brass is lead and nickel free ****
****The vast majority of brass findings on the market today are imported ****

1)Many manufacturers/suppliers use lead, nickel or other alloys depending upon what the determined use for the product is.
2)Many designers use these products.
3)Yet others send clean products to the platers to be "antiqued", a process that uses not only nickel but dozens of toxic chemicals.
4)These products often are imported en mass from countries that do NOT offer safe working environments or living wages to employees/children/slaves.

~1ofmykind exceptional quality Virgin Bronze/Brass (TM) is achieved using my clean/green hands on secret recipe and is not offered anywhere else on the market except for in my shop philagree.etsy.com. and torque.etsy.com.

This studio is a GREEN 1! Utilizing recycled paper, packaging and ink ALWAYS. In fact recycling vintage jewelry was how all this filigree frenzy began in the mid 90's. I still use abandoned OLD stock jewels, and only buy new stock from well established houses which I have visited personally insuring quality employee and product standards. I will never tolerate slave/child labor or environmental sloth.
I offer only MY OWN original museum quality design and stand by my workmanship for life...1 woman, 2 hands, a pile of pliers, passionate about my work as well as supporting others on their individual artistic journeys. May you tread a new path in lieu of walking the footsteps of another for creativity cannot be echoed, imitated, taught nor forced...it is simply an innate quality of being human. Click your heals you're already there :)
