The damage is barely noticeable and still a beautiful piece. Also I received a bonus item as a thank you. I love this shop and always buy things when they come to the Flint Art Fair.

Upcycled bits of history.

We make jewelry for the adventurous.

Our pieces are the perfect gift for that spunky wanderer in your life. Extraordinary people make the everyday magical, don’t they? Give them a gift as unique as they are. We are inspired by nature & industry; we sustainably source, and it’s a gift no one else will ever have!

All of our pieces are handmade by KC (owner & designer), in one of three places: her homestead in Michigan, or her two little studios in Amman & Istanbul. We love to travel, discover extraordinary people, and experience the wondrous spectacle of everyday life!

    Got a lot of hats. That's literal (also figurative). I like green tea, going places, and collecting pebbles.

Shop policies

Last updated on October 27, 2016
Durability, safety and aesthetic are important to us. Before we consider each piece finished, we give them all a little test-run for any fraying, edges or insecure parts. We line anything that needs a little more comfort, and we coat anything that might need it, all to ensure many years of life to come. All of our works of art are hand wired, riveted, resined or glued-in for insurance. Typically, a single piece will be secured with two or more of those methods. (In general, KC doesn't like to rely on glue, but understands the occasional necessity.)

We are really passionate about handmade art- but we also understand some of the quirks inherent to such personal and glorious human creations!
We want you to love handmade too- so here are some common-sense policies to ensure the best experience for everyone:
