Artwalk 2016 Locaiton: Gallery Lofts Parking Lot, 2412 2nd Avenue N
My wife and I are both retired. We started making jewelry about eight years ago. It started out as a hobby, making jewelry for women in our church. Our business grew as their friends saw what they were wearing and wanted to purchase jewelry from us also. All pieces of jewelry are hand made using vintage silver plate flatware. We tag each piece with the pattern, manufacturer and date the flatware was made. Some of the pieces are greater than one hundred years old. Customers tend to want to purchase a bracelet where the silverware was made the year they or a family member was born. Most of our shows are juried, such as NEACA in Huntsville, Arts Alive in Florence, Jerry Brown in Hamilton, Children’s Harbor in Alex City, Ross Bridge in Birmingham and Homestead Hollow in Springville, Fayette Art Show, Fayette.
