They Were Once Just Rocks

Welcome to Upcyclist!

I specialize in upcycling (go figure), custom faceting, wire work, and lost-wax casting. Upcycling, if ya didn't know, is the process of taking something you'd throw out or recycle and making it into something new. For example, taking apart a computer power supply, salvaging the copper wire, making that wire into rings, and creating a chainmaille bracelet.

When casting, I tend to work with Argentium silver, but will happily work in gold, copper, pewter, or brass. And if it can be made into wire (silver, copper, steel, titanium, gold, platinum, aluminum...), I'll play with it.

Faceting is my latest love, and I am a certified cutter with the United States Faceters Guild.

I love custom work, so give a holler if you'd like me to work on something just for you!
