Simple, Elegant, and Mostly Recycled

My daughters and I create both traditional and non-traditional jewelry. The steampunk pieces made of vintage watch parts and old skeleton keys look very non-traditional. And, of course, there's our more traditional gemstone and precious metal jewelry.

My older daughter has now put together some pieces that kinda fall somewhere in between. Made of newer hardware found in a stash of old sewing machine parts or in a box of small items we picked up at a tag sale, she's created some simple and more modern designs mostly in black.

Somehow when we find ourselves alone with almost any kind of small objects and a little wire or chain, my daughters and I manage to create jewelry.


  1. I love talented people like you! Those earrings are superb. I came by to say hello and thank you for visiting my blog today. It's lovely to meet people like myself, with a retired 'grumpy' at home :) Sorry about the's a one-off. Don't worry I'm not often as serious as that. I've signed up to be your latest follower and am off to see what you and your creative daughters have been up to.
    Warm wishes

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Carol. So nice to meet you and welcome to my blog.
