My jewelry pieces are all one-of-a-kind, mostly made from recycled bits and pieces. My style is a bit edgy and I like to play with mixed metals so that they can be worn with many different companion pieces. You will notice that my embossed printing is a little wonky-this is intentional-it's all part of my style. I also celebrate imperfections found on some of these old objects, as they are scars that detail part of their history. I do like to go an extra step to finish my pieces with nice details, like eyelets in the drilled holes. Most smashed spoon pieces just have drilled holes...I like the more finished and refined look the eyelet gives and it's an opportunity to add another metal color.
On the smashed spoon necklaces, you will see each item marked " Extra Large," "Large," "Medium," or "Small." These labels are referring to the bowl size of the vintage or antique spoon that was used. Larger ladies usually prefer the larger pieces, whereas the small ones can look nice on a lady of any size or age, to include young girls.
Most are strung on black or brown polished leather.
The "Special Collection" and "Mermaid" pieces still have the look that my pieces are known for but will have a really unusual, rare, or extra element. They're a little fancier than the regular smashed spoon pieces.
My copper and sterling silver pieces are all made entirely by hand from raw metals.

An Alabama Farm Boy's Life is my dad's autobiography. I spent a few weeks with him typing the manuscript from his hand-written notes, then edited, designed the cover, and had it printed for him. It was one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. He can't believe people are actually purchasing his book and leaving 5-star reviews! It's appropriate for 4th or 5th graders up to folks of all ages. He's 87 years old this year, and already writing more notes for a second book.
I've been a vendor of vintage and antiques treasures for many years and have recently decided to offer some of the smaller items to you here, on the website. Please check back frequently, as the items will be constantly changing.
