About

It all started one day at my daughter's Wedding Shower when...

...I created 4 gifts: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue.

For the “something old”, I went out to the garage and found an old skeleton key. I put it on a chain and called it the Key to Happiness. Little did I know then that the Key to Happiness was meant for me too!

About a week later, I went out to the garage again and realized just how many construction materials either end up in a landfill or are just sitting around in other people’s garages collecting dust. Suddenly, every latch, hinge, drawer pull, keyhole, plumbing elbow, washer and wing nut was calling to me, begging to be upcycled!

That was 5 years ago and I’ve never stopped being inspired. My Key to Happiness comes from giving my customers one of a kind handcrafted jewelry made from recycled hardware that they love wearing as much as I love designing it. I am truly honored to be in the company of many other talented Upcycler Artisans out there, but I still have not seen products like mine in the market place. My most rewarding moments come when my customers are drawn to a piece on display that they saw from a distance. Then when I tell them what the piece was recycled from, they love it even more!

    I care very much about the environment and can’t stand that so much usable hardware ends up in a landfill. Savvy Reclamation was born out of a need to prevent that and to give my customers quality handcrafted jewelry from upcycled hardware.
