About

Metal Accessories Industrial Style

We love metal for it's strength, endurance and versatility. Metal can be morphed into shapes that are edgy and cool, combine the masculine with the feminine, are strong and solid yet are smooth and silky to the touch. It can be ground or rusted, made to look old while depicting the new. It is a magical material that sometimes has a mind of it's own.

The style we create is a bit industrial mixed with symbols that have been passed down throughout history. Their meanings enrich our lives. Our vibe is street smart wearable art.

Here's the story of why we started this little shop:
After working for 17 years in graphic design, Jon wanted to work more with his hands. In 2005 he apprenticed at a metal shop and began making awesome sculptures. Of course as his wife (I'm Mary) I have bragging rights!

In 2007 he went out on his own and we started "The Metal Gardener" a company for him to create organic and nature inspired sculptures, lighting and other functional works of art.

I (Mary)worked as a product developer in the social expression and game industry for many years. After the company I was working for shut it's doors in Tucson, I needed a job. Jon came in one day with a buckle he had made "just because." My product development mind went in overdrive and I saw us creating a line of metal accessories.

Both of us come up with ideas, Jon sketches them out then draws them on the computer. Jon also does most of the metal work himself using a plasma cutter. Some of out tiny pieces we have cut using a water jet by a local metal fabricator. I take most of the product shots, assemble the accessories adding key chains, money clips and chains. I create the bling jewelry, answer emails, do the book keeping, ship the product and manage the site. We use several local printers to silkscreen our designs on tshirts.

We've had so much fun living out our dream of owning our own business and hope you enjoy your visit!

Thanks for stopping by!
