ELM Jewelry Designs
Westerville, OH

My work is all steampunk inspired. I deconstruct old watches, re-purpose antique found objects, re-use old leather and other items that I might find in my treasure hunting. The items I find are usually old and rusty; I file and clean all the keys and metal pieces I come across. The antique jewelry I find to re-use I prefer to be broken already, it’s not only more of a challenge for myself, but I’m also not breaking apart something that has survived over 50 years.
