Beer Bottle Ring

The large disc bead was made from a recycled beer bottle. The hammered, sterling silver band was given a patina finish.

Recycled Glass Beads

Since December I have been busy creating a new look for my designs. I have been working exclusively with recycled or upcylced wine and beer them a new life as lampwork beads in jewelry.

I have also been taking a metal working class at the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts. I am now incorporating handmade earwires and rings into my designs. I am proud of the new look that I am experimenting with and hope that my designs will find their way to many happy wearers.
