Assemblage Jewelry

This collection features jewelry assembled from a variety of  vintage and antique finds, the things that end up at the bottom of your jewelry box or in your junk drawer.

I use old jewelry, coins, machine parts, washers, stampings, lures, spoons, buckles and of course buttons, knitting needles and tin.  All items are metal-worked to make them special and give them a new life.  Every component is altered in some way, then recombined into the new design.
