This was a quick turnaround custom order. Lori was great to work with and the key ring, while simple, has tremendous character to it. I will gladly order from Lori in the future.

I love this necklace and the chain has a really nice heavy weight training it. I ordered it with another piece from the store, and they both arrived quickly and in a super cool up-cycled painted tea bag box stuffed with old sewing-pattern tissue! It's a work of art on its own, so I put it on my bookcase as a decoration :) Loved the whole experience and the lovely handmade necklaces! Thank you!

This necklace is super cool and looks great on me! And I love the packaging it came in! So creative and really kinda beautiful :) I'm using it as a decoration on my book case.

Upcycling Obsession

I just can't even help it any more! I search out all kinds of wacky things that people just don't want so I can transform them into new and funky art pieces and jewelry.

All of my jewelry is one-of-a-kind. I do all the work myself, from cleaning and repairing old pieces, to prepping them for a new look with layers of unusual combinations.

I work with vintage jewelry, clock and watch parts, game pieces, and many types of found objects including hardware from old workshops. Everything I use is recycled, so you know you're getting something that's one of a kind.

I create assemblege pieces by combining various elements for an artistic finished piece. The final result is a creative, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry that not only looks great, but also shows that you can be an environmentalist AND have style!

Please remember that imperfections are part of the charm of my jewelry. The signs of wear are proof that I work with used materials.

My goal is to continue to find new ways to use things that are already made. After all, the less I produce from scratch, the better it is for Mother Earth.

Thanks for reading!
