About

Handcrafted, eco-friendly wood jewelry and cufflinks made from the remnants of guitar maker, Koentopp Guitars

I was on a very long road trip with my husband, Danny ("the guitar maker") and one of our stops was his wood supplier. In the car, we had a long conversation about the woods he used and why they were unique and special. I happen to be wearing a handmade wooden bracelet from Costa Rica and Danny said "you could make that". He had boxes and boxes of scrap wood that he couldn't just throw out or burn because it was too special.... K scraps was born.

At the time I was working for a non-profit environmental organization and protecting our environmental has always been important to me. I love the process of "upcycling" and showing people that we really throw out too much stuff.

I now have an endless pile of scraps to choose from and the best woodworking teacher around (he's pretty easy on the eyes too ;)).

All K scraps are handmade from the wood remnants of custom guitar maker, Koentopp Guitars. K scraps are presented on an upcycled, stamped cardboard backing and wrapped in reused tissue paper and ribbon.

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ

How should I care for my Kscraps?

Please avoid contact with water for all Kscraps pieces. Do not shower, bathe, or swim while wearing your Kscraps pieces. This will significantly lower the life of the piece.

Do you take custom orders?

YES! Got an idea? let us know and we'll try to bring it life! If you see something in our shop that you would like on a different earring hook or strung on different necklace wire, just let us know. We love custom orders and if we can do it, we will!

Will my Kscraps change color overtime?

Your piece may alter slight in color due to the sunlight but this will be a natural progression and shouldn't be too noticeable.

How should I store my Kscraps?

Kscraps pieces can be stored with other jewelry, preferably in a clean and covered place that isn't too hot or too cold.

I've had my Kscraps for a long time and wear them everyday, how do I shine them up?

To shine your Kscraps, rub candlewax (preferably a light or white colored candle) on the wood, and rub with a cloth such as an old t-shirt (a paper towel will work too).

What are your jewelry findings made of?

Most of the findings are made from brass, stainless steel, or aluminum. Please convo us for questions on any specific item.
