I make new jewelry from found damaged jewelry parts and pieces which can not be restored.
All my pieces are made exclusively from vintage pieces that can not be salvaged, except to create new one of a kind vintage reclaimed repurposed recycled statement keepsake unique jewelry.
I do not intentionally damage vintage pieces.
