About GeminiDragonfly

On Etsy since 2011

Always Changing and Never Ending!

We have been working together to create Recycled Art for many years. It all started when Tamara drug a car hood in from the scrap pile years ago. Her late husband did hobby restoration of classic cars, so she was used to being around a plasma cutter, welder and auto body tools. She knew what she had to do. Use those tools to make art! Pretty soon the whole family was working together creating what became the family business. Lots of things have grown and changed through the years, but Tamara is still dragging pieces of tired metal in from the scrap yard then molesting and molding it in to Art. The shop is always a mess. Her hands are always scraped and burned and the music is always loud, but she still loves it!

During the quieter moments, Tamara creates jewelry from mostly recycled materials, as well. You'll see many different incarnations of her creative juices at GeminiDragonfly. Luke loves to forge in his spare time. Tamara's daughter, McKenzie, creates some of the jewelry, as well, and offers support in running the Etsy part of the family business. Tamara remarried and her husband, Rick, helps with shipping and art shows.

The inspiration and creative energy is always changing, so check in often. You never know what they'll decide to bring to life next!

  • Tamara

    Owner, Artist/Designer, Shop Manager

    I guess I'm where this all started. I consider being an Artist my vocation which is described in the dictionary as an inclination, as if in response to a summons to undertake a certain kind of work. That's it in a nutshell for me.

  • McKenzie Paige

    Designer

    I grew up with soap stone in my hand, drawing my whimsical designs on steel for my mom to cut out (see some of the Fairies.) I'm pursuing my own creative life now, but still design Jewelry and some textiles for Mom's shop.

  • Rick R.

    Shipping And General Support

    I'm Tamara's husband and worked in Education my entire career. Now, I support Tamara's artistic endeavors by handling shipping and keeping us fed when she's working!

    I'm the Queen Bee and they are but minions!

  • A print shop

    San Francisco, CA

    I use an amazing company that sources quality products and prints my original designs on them for me, using high quality printing processes that imbue bright, vibrant colors. Some products may be originally sourced from other countries, but the printing is all done in the United States.
