My name is Elizabeth Payne and I am a jewelry designer and metal smith. I am passionate about finding & re-purposing forgotten and cast off pieces of personal adornment...transforming them into something modern and relevant. My goal is to create precious, durable, heirloom-quality, wearable art. Constantly on the hunt for special and rare findings and components, I personally select each piece of vintage glass, gemstone, and carving for it’s intrinsic beauty and rarity. As a metal smith, I design each of my pieces around the found AND the forged. With permanence in mind, only the highest quality of raw materials are used in fabrication to ensure that all pieces are durable as well as beautiful. It is my goal to design something truly original and beautiful for you to treasure for a lifetime.
