Lost & Forged Gives New Life and Beauty to Forgotten Objects (recycled silver jewelry, spoon rings, fork bracelets, Judaica and much more)

Welcome to the Lost & Forged shop on Etsy!

If you're reading this page, you probably like unique, high quality handmade goods. Like other fans of Lost & Forged, perhaps you:

--Want your style to surprise, delight and intrigue (our creations aren't only beautiful at first glance. On closer examination, they reveal interesting stories and origins)
--Refuse to compromise between beauty, sustainability and artistry.
--Wish to inspire with unique luster
--Like to support small businesses, and/or products made in the USA

If any of these statements describe you, then you've come to the right place!!

Lost & Forged offers unique silver creations, handmade from reclaimed vintage materials, especially silver flatware. We create rings, bracelets, necklaces, money clips, candlesticks, tablet stands, Judaica and more. We make all of our products by hand, using traditional silversmith techniques, at our workshop in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA.

We seek out old objects – largely discarded, irrelevant and forgotten ones – and give them new purpose and beauty. Our creations fit a lot of possible category terms: upcycled, recycled, repurposed, altered, found object creations, etc.

Lost & Forged is the Artscape 2016 Emerging Artist for Jewelry.

OUR FOUNDER

Doug Heifetz, Founder and Silversmith, first experimented with metalwork when searching for a handicraft to share with his family, friends and community. He soon 'fell down the rabbit hole', however, and his initially whimsical experiment quickly became a preoccupation with the craft of silversmithing, as applied to vintage materials. He began to study techniques of hand forging, soldering, stone-setting, engraving and more. He takes inspiration from many other artists within his family and beyond, and hopes to honor them through his work, while serving a diverse base of customers and fans. He lives in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA.
