    Humble Beginnings and a Desire to Make a Difference

    One day while visiting my parents, my mom asked me to take the typebars* out of the typewriter she used in college for a to-be-determined craft project. As I was disassembling the machine, I found a lot of pieces that would make fun dangly earrings. So I started putting some together for my girlfriend and before I knew it I had made 30 pairs. Sensing an opportunity to do something creative and fun with a positive environmental impact, I decided to launch this business.

    Every piece I sell is made with parts that were slated to be thrown out. By purchasing them, you're keeping those parts out of the landfill and enabling me to break down the machine and recycle the parts I can't use. My first trip to the scrap yard put 90 pounds (40 kilos) of steel and 8 pounds (3.6 kilos) of copper back into the resource stream; reducing the environmental and energy impacts of mining new raw materials.

    As my business grows, I plan to expand my impact; eventually becoming a certified Benefit Corporation (B Corp) and donating a portion of profits to causes that improve the natural environment.

    Thank you for taking the time to browse in my shop. Please contact me if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. I look forward to doing business with you.
