uncommonwork's Shop Announcement

I am Shane Miller of UNCOMMONWORK. Thanks for checking out my site. Whether it be sterling silver jewelry or mixed media narrative boxes...metal and photo-etching are the foundations of my art. Pattern and texture become my palette more than color. Vintage photographs, words, narrative and a good story are also key elements. Throw in a little imagination and my observations of how I see the world and you have the ingredients of what I call UNCOMMONWORK. I hope you find something here that makes you smile.

Visit my blog for stories about individual pieces and information about the process.
