lets see, i started my ETSY shop over a year ago then got cancer, kicked cancers butt and now back to share my creations with you guys. i have been a collector and creator of treasures my whole life. being an artist/ metalsmith and jeweler is just second nature to me, i dont know what i would do without it in my life. i enjoy the hunt of scavaging for vintage items to use and love banging and torching plain metal to create new and wonderus trinkets that shine! all of the copper and brass used comes from old buildings being demolished/rehabbed . my toddler is my right hand man in searching out these metals...its a pretty funny site to see me toddler wearing him in his pouch and tracking down just the right pieces. the workmen get a kick out of it i'm sure!!! using repurposed and upcycled materials is key, thus everything having a story to tell. call me a sentimental fool but capturing memories and thinking of amazing moments in life…
