Announcement   Thank you for taking a look at my shop, MADE IN!

MADE IN is a jewelry line based on found objects I source on travels abroad. They are later cast in bronze or sterling silver and repurposed as new jewelry components. For my current, 2016 Atitlan Collection, I traveled to Central America for inspiration. I searched high and low for the perfect pieces to cast that would reflect my aesthetic. In the end, I found two iguana feet in San Pedro La Laguna, Lago de Atitlan, Guatemala, that have inspired the whole collection!

In past collections I've cast shark teeth found in Belize, arrowheads and desert rose crystals from Argentina, and scorpion tails from Honduras. Deconstructed brooches, cuff links and pins found in vintage shops, markets, and artisan fairs of those countries are some of the other elements used in the collections. I design and handcraft each piece in a small studio in Chicago, Illinois. Distinct attention to detail and high quality materials such as bronze and sterling silver are used in each piece.

All items can be cast in sterling silver or gold upon request. Feel free to contact me through Etsy or at Madeinjewelry [!at] gmail.com for custom options.

Items ship 3 to 15 business days from purchase.

About

MADE IN

In 1992, I immigrated to the US from Ukraine—a journey that ignited my lifelong passion for travel and transformation. Inspired by found and reclaimed objects I discover through voyage and exploration, my work strives to capture the excitement of once-in-a-lifetime experiences and adventures in uniquely memorable and wearable works of art.

Stones, bones, arrowheads, and vintage brooches and pins sourced from fairs and flea markets in Argentina, sharks' teeth, scorpions, and crab claws found on nature hikes and beaches of Central America —these artifacts of both nature and industry are cast in high-quality bronze or sterling silver, and reconstructed to create contemporary jewelry with eclectic charm.
