Sprockets
 
I learned how to enamel metal just so I could make these cool earrings and pendants!  They are made from copper stampings and enameled with glass in a kiln or with a torch depending on the thickness of the copper.
 
Recycled Bike Parts
(yup! there’s road time on that jewelry!)
 
This is really a father/daughter effort.  My bike mechanic dad takes apart old, used bike chain and removes the inflation valves from bike tires; he saws chain rollers to make jump rings that are so strong that I have to use a vise to close them!  He cleans everything with a green cleaner and rinses it well.  While he is messing around with all of this, he makes chain crosses and connects up other stuff just for fun, sorts everything neatly and passes it along to me!  What a guy!
 
Other Fun Stuff
 
I love stones, bali silver, pearls and combining different materials that might not always go together to make something beautiful with a little edge to it.
