About

Upcycled Goods: Rescue & Re-use

Making new things from old: that's the big idea here at XO Handworks.

Old maps, discarded dictionaries, outdated encyclopedias, even junk mail -- any interesting papers are just pendants or pins waiting to be created.

Bottlecaps, buttons, cancelled postage stamps, vintage wood game pieces, Scrabble letters -- all bits and pieces to be turned into new jewelry, accessories and other gifts items.

I started XO Handworks in 2002, and it's my [more than] full-time work. My husband helps when he's not working at the local nursing home.

All items in my shop are handmade in my home studio in Osseo, Minnesota, USA. With bookcases full of maps and atlases, I can find just about any location you'd like.
Everyone has a special place -- what's yours?
