About

Creating something new from old items is our favorite pasttime.

Our goal is to take treasures from the past and create new and unique pieces of jewelry and household items that future generations can enjoy. Wendy, a part time Executive Director and Drew, a former rock quarry man decided to adventure into their creative side. We have both enjoyed using our artistic talents! Drew has dabbled in landscape and wildlife photography, as well as, oil painting while Wendy enjoyed working with fiber and beads. Deciding to merge our creativity, we now enjoy working together to up-cycle antique and vintage items into jewelry and home décor. We especially love flatware and our goal is to take treasures from the past and create new and unique pieces that future generations can enjoy.

Each of us have a studio of our own...the kitchen table is our conference room...Drew is happy in his studio polishing, cutting, bending, well just creating beautiful pieces of silver or wood. Then he takes the pieces to Wendy's studio for the finishing touches...it is a collaborative match made in heaven (well most of the time).

We started this company in November, 2011 after Drew had recovered from a debilitating illness that left him disabled and unable to stand for long periods of time. Being in his early 50s and no longer able to work was tough, so we turned his paint studio into a metal shop where he can use his hands. We started with flatware for a couple of years perfecting our product. In 2013, we decided to start adding home décor (shabby chic) to our resume...this has been slow going...it takes time to find old treasures but we will be adding great items for the home in 2014, including yard art.

Everything we create gives us purpose...isn't that how it should be?

    Married 34 years, we love spending time together especially creating special gifts from old vintage items. Our favorite item: flatware. Drew just loves to polish, cut or bend spoons and forks into jewelry and animals. Wendy completes the pieces.
