Announcement   Handmade Functional Elegant Hair Barrettes Combs & Bun Covers - Vintage Inspired Jewelry - Recycled Copper & Brass Wedding Bands

Made from recycled copper with hammer and torch, my items feature accents of silver, brass, and bronze. Gems, pearls, glass beads, found objects, vintage finding and buttons embellish my pieces. I love to use unusual objects, repurposing them into eye catching adornments.

Pre Raphaelite & Art Nouveau painters, history and world mythology fascinate me. Sometimes when I make my jewelry, I imagine my treasures being unearthed some day in an archaeological dig.

I make my wedding bands with recycled copper and brass pipe. All my copper wire is recycled from electrical wire, and I can now do some designs in bronze!

Beautiful work! This was a gift for my husband, to fasten a wool cloak, and it works like a charm!

About

A fascination with wire, world history, and art....

My shop started a few years ago when a friend who always forwards me money making creative ideas told me about this wonderful place called Etsy. I signed up, with very amateur photos and big dreams.

The forums really helped me fine tune my shop's look and feel, as well as helped me see my shop through the eyes of the shopper.

My pieces are primarily recycled copper with hammer and torch. I sometimes use accents of silver, brass, bronze. Gems, pearls, glass beads, found objects, vintage finding and buttons embellish my pieces. I love to use unusual objects, repurposing them into eye catching adornments.

Pre Raphaelite & Art Nouveau painters, history and world mythology fascinate me. Sometimes when I make my jewelry, I imagine my treasures being unearthed some day in an archaeological dig.

I make my wedding bands with recycled copper and brass pipe. All my copper wire is recycled from electrical wire, and I can now do some designs in bronze!
