Assemblage Jewelry

This collection features jewelry assembled from a variety of  vintage metal finds: hardware, machine parts, steel washers, brass stampings, fishing lures, coins, spoons, salt shakers, belt buckles as well as buttons, knitting needles and tin.  All items are metal-worked to make them special and give them a new life. They are smashed, textured, heat patinaed and altered, then recombined into original designs.  I often add a custom chain assembled from vintage pieces making for unique and striking focal necklaces.
