From Raw to Whimsical. One Dream at a Time.
~*I was married in December, and I am currently in the midst of changing my name. Sorry for any confusion for past customers! *~
My name is Victoria Oliver (Dunnaway), and this little Etsy shop offers a glimpse into my studio...
Using a blend of blacksmith and silversmith techniques, beautiful antique tools and fanciful designs; my jewelry pieces combine rare earth elements in a whimsical way for beautifully bohemian, free-spirited women...
Using mainly recycled and locally sourced materials; I blend contemporary and age-old designs in an effort to create pieces that tell a tangible story, and use lightly of the resources we are gifted with. My pieces blend natural influences with a flair for fantasy.
I collect and rescue beautiful antique tools. There are stories etched into their worn handles and patina'ed metal... Hammers, files and pliers collected from grandfathers, uncles, flea markets; and a stunning old hand-turn drill-press, once repaired, gracefully continues on as I fabricate projects.
My studio feels creative, homey, and well-loved. I hope that my work brings the same peaceful feeling into any life that it touches.
