recycled beauty

grandma's butter knife upccycled with hand formed torch-fired enamel flowersRecycled from Grandma’s kitchen – are two silver plated butter knives that are formed into cuff bracelets. Handmade metal work flowers are coated in vitreous enamels in two shades green and torch-fired at 1500 degrees to produce the luster finish you see. The enamel flowers are attached to the cuff bracelet with micro-screws to complete the look.

The visual inspiration for these recycled pieces is the photo seen here. Old trucks, fresh from the farm, have a wonderful assortment of rich patina colors.7c80429cd83ec3f61852f59d9cd7bbf1
