INSPIRATION can be found anywhere….

While walking through the grocery store I had an ah-ha moment in the beverage isle. The colors and patterns on beverage cans were vibrant and exciting and I thought to myself, "I wonder what I can make out of that!” My metal smithing background led me to ponder jewelry. I made my can purchase, brought them home, consumed them and begun making flower petal earrings. A dozen prototypes later I deemed them worthy to put out into the world. That’s how the "Uncanny” Collection was born in October 2011.

Saving the planet was also the inspiration for this line of jewelry. There is so much "good stuff” we throw away everyday! Well I found a way to repurpose some of it into super cool one-of-a kind jewelry. My cans come from the local recycle center, restaurants, friends, family and anyone I see toss out a cool colorful can. One man’s trash (or woman’s in this case) is another's treasure truly applies here.
