Today I presented the Repurposed project to my Into to Metals students. I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you. Who is your favorite jeweler that is working with repurposed materials?

This brooch is by Christiane Köhne and is made of artificial flowers and 18k gold.

One aspect of the project, that they will be doing, is considering surface treatment. I thought this group of rings by Marlene True was a great example. By using the same format for each ring she is riveting on tin that she has affected the surface in different ways.

And this ring by Maria Cristina Belluci made of resin, silver and colored pencils.
