What happens when something old becomes something new? What happens when jewelry gets repurposed? More often than not, there is a story there. A story that will last for generations.
When I get to be a part of such a story? Magic.
What happens when jewelry gets repurposed?
Jewelry is meaningful on so many levels. It empowers. Decorates. Commits us to another. There is always a story. And it’s the stories…YOUR stories…that fires me up. When I am given the opportunity to repurpose a meaningful piece of jewelry into another meaningful piece of jewelry, I am truly honored.
I thought you might like to see the process behind the scenes of jewelry being repurposed. I was approached by a dear friends son to take on such a task, needless to say, I was thrilled. He was gifted his grandmother’s wedding set to create a new engagement ring for his beloved! WARNING. PHOTO HEAVY…but oh so worth it!
First. The original set. Beautiful. Well worn. Years of love and devotion. Honestly? It’s a bit intimidating. What if a break something? Lose a stone? Those voices are always there…until I sit at my bench. Focused. Ready.
