I gravitate towards costume jewelry as my primary material-of-choice because it carries the connotation of being 80s junk, trash destined for the landfill. At the flea market, costume jewelry is at the bottom of the chain - nobody bothers with it anymore… but somebody’s trash is my treasure. Although I am only repurposing jewelry into jewelry, I like to think that I am assembling pieces that would never have coexisted otherwise - and for that, they are given a chance at a second life. My only intention is to extend the lifespan of these pieces and create one-of-a-kind pieces that will be loved by you and adorn your body. Each necklace has a piece of my heart, and I hope that love and energy is palpable when it rests around your neck.
