About joeyfivecents

Sales 2,187
On Etsy since 2008

everything has a story...

Formerly, I was a film & video editor and used pictures and sound as a means to tell a narrative. Although I now create with different media, it's still about telling a story.

I live and work in Bucks County, PA in a Civil War era farmhouse and barn that provides a sense of warmth and creative curiosity. I draw inspiration from my surroundings - the natural beauty and wildlife that changes throughout the seasons and the sense of history that is inherent to this area. I source local flea markets and auctions for my materials and often find that I'm drawn to things that may not get used right away but have sparked an idea that needs to grow and develop. Digging through boxes of musty antique books and vintage ephemera is pure inspiration filled with possibilities. I thrive on that connection in my work between the past and the present - to incorporate something old that has been deemed 'not useful' or relevant and to present it in a modern context that celebrates its original story is what my jewelry is all about.

My handmade work features curated original vintage paper imagery that I cut, seal and preserve in layers of jewelry grade resin in my home studio. Every finished ‘joey’ design honors the stories of the original materials used but presents a new narrative that touches on abstraction and nostalgia while emphasizing reuse and eco-fashion.

Want to know more about my studio and process? I was honored to have been featured on Etsy's blog series 'Inspiring Workspaces' - find the story here:

to joeyfivecents…

All of my jewelry is handmade and one of a kind. Each piece is diverse and unusual, and the wearer’s experience should be fun and conversational.

I use both modern and vintage reclaimed images and seal them to be water resistant, however, they are not waterproof. Please don’t immerse pendants in water or wear them in the shower.
