Recrudescence offers 2 collections:

1)Archetypal, elegant, refashioned antique/vintage accoutrements inspired by the Victorian era. Specializing in late 1800-1970's European, Japanese and American glass and metal. Designed for the modern romantic.

2) Crude Beauty: Electroplated naturals and other peculiar objects

“I am currently working with the idea of relics and remnants of production. As we look to the future, what we find commonplace will become sacred. Preserving natural objects through electroplating read as a relics of the past. For example, in the future, a flower may not exist. It will become an object in a natural history museum rather than a living breathing organism. I am not trying to make a stance on environmental issues per se. But more so to sentiment. To appreciate what we have taken for granted in our sometimes self inundated lives. I am extending their life cycle. Once manipulated, plated and sealed, they become one of a kind preserved objects d’art. Each of these elements have a raw yet refined look when assembled as traveling adornment.”

History and Process: The electrochemistry process was invented in 1805 by an Italian chemist named Luigi V. Brugnatelli.
Electroplating is the application of electrolytic cells in which a thin layer of metal is deposited onto an electrically conductive surface (about.com). In other words, a positive charge is attached to a piece of copper plate. A negative charge is attached to the object which is coated in conductive material. The positive (copper plate) and negative (conductive object) are submerged in an acid bath as particles are transferred. Items may take several hours or days to fully plate. Many of Recrudescence’s new “Crude Beauty” items incorporate copper electroplating in the design. Currently, Recrudescence only offers copper plated items.

Molten Metal-Yellow Brass, Red Brass, Copper and the "Crucible Crumbs"
In mass production, particularly of metal goods, beautiful and sometimes obscure remnants are left. These are simply tossed as refuse or recycled. These remnants are unseen to the masses. Only those who have in intimate relationships with the process recognize them. They are seen as remnants not to be utilized in a final product. To me these are part of a life cycle. Once polished and manipulated they become objects of adornment.

Men and women's adornment available. Bridal and special requests are welcome.

Andrea Minnette began making traveling adornment after returning from adventures in Chicago, Italy, Germany, Turkey and Northern California. Each move carried with it memories and sentiment of past lives; of her own and of others.
The idea of leaving one’s own footprint while collecting others past evolved into a passion. How have these objects traveled through time, carrying on in the physical world? Who has coveted them? Who has left them behind? The materials in reference range from discarded, patinated turn of the century costume jewelry to items deposited through natural processes, such as moss and dried seed pods. Time-worn materials find creative marriage and a second life in Recrudescence’s designs.

About

A world built of sentiment is poetic, a world built on mass production leaves one's soul lost..

I began making traveling adornment after returning from from ventures in Chicago, Italy, Germany, Turkey and Northern California. Each move carrying with it memories and sentiment of past lives; of my own and of others.

The idea of leaving one’s footprint while collecting others pasts became one of strong interest to me. How do these objects travel through time and become the chosen ones to carry on in the physical world? Who has coveted them? Who has left them behind? The materials in reference range from discarded, patinated turn of the century costume jewelry- to items deposited through natural processes, such as, moss and dried pods. Time worn materials find creative marriage and a second life in Recrudescence’s designs.

Crude Beauty: Electroplated and Molten Metal Collection

I am currently working with the idea of relics and remnants of production. As we look to the future, what we find commonplace will become sacred. Preserving natural objects through electroplating read as a relics of the past. For example, in the future, a flower may not exist. It will become an object in a natural history museum rather than a living breathing organism. I am not trying to make a stance on environmental issues per se. But more so the sentiment. To appreciate what we have taken for granted in our sometimes self inundated lives. As for mass production, particularly of metal goods, beautiful and sometimes obscure remnants are left. These are simply tossed as refuse or recycled. These remnants are unseen to the masses. Only those who have in intimate relationships with the process recognize them. Again seeing them as remnants not to be utilized in a final product. To me these are part of a life cycle. Once polished and manipulated they become objects to adornment. Each of these elements have a raw yet refined look when assembled as traveling adornment, ie jewelry.

Vintage Collection

As an artist, I view my work as a modern reflection to the past. Celebrating it’s legacy and timelessness, my passion is to create adornments from a cultural and anthropological perspective. Once treasured and then lost, many of the items in my work are composed of pieces that have been locked away for decades in warehouses and homes from around the world. In creating my work, I not only get to create expressions of my own, but also pay respect to a world of forgotten memories.

In a society driven by mass consumerism, I have always had a love for the worn.
Items wearing their age proudly through a multitude of patinas find their way into my work. Their previous experiences, guarding us as we venture through our own lives.
