When jewelry artist, Jamie Lanier, started her jewelry making journey she didn't want to create jewelry that added more waste to an already wasteful product consumption eager society. Her goal was to create jewelry from goods that already exist - salvaged, repurposed, upcycled everyday items.
Over the last 10 years the stunning jewelry she creates has become a mission to create beautiful one of kind pieces from unexpected or surprising items. Most of her pieces focus on utilizing costume or junk jewelry as well as cookie and tea tins but anything and everything is fair game.
Every single piece is carefully handcrafted with the intent of utilizing materials that already exist - in turn helping to cut down on the waste that material consumption creates.
