Welcome to BrewedAdornments where you will find accessories handcrafted from recycled and artisan ingredients.

Many years as a Financial Analyst shaped my approach to jewelry design. For me, design is one part inspiration, one part craftsmanship and several parts perseverance. If you enjoy what you are doing, you'll find the time, energy and skills to make it work. While I have a deep admiration for design, it's the construction that captures my imagination. The building of the piece from the selection of color to the layering of elements brings true joy into my designs. Its difficult for me to imagine it without touching and doing it at the same time.

Colors and textures provide the inspiration while the tutelage of great instructors and guild memberships provide the tools I need to continue to master new techniques. I utilize…

Welcome to BrewedAdornments where you will find accessories handcrafted from recycled and artisan ingredients.

Colors and textures provide the inspiration while the tutelage of great instructors and guild memberships provide the tools I need to continue to master new techniques. I utilize unusual stones and artwork in my designs as well as recycled materials. Bottle caps are often seen in my work. There's something about these little miniature works of advertising artistry that have captured my imagination. So much is said in such a small space; they are a true testament to the power of simplicity in design. I'm proud to reclaim them from an inglorious end in a landfill and to enhance their artistry with my own.

My bottle cap jewelry is based on used original bottled caps from various independent sources (including my own consumption). None of the original bottle cap logos or graphics have been reproduced. All trademarks displayed in this web site are owned by their respective owners. I recycle the waste of others in these designs and I am not associated or have any affiliations with any of these brands.
