About

meThis is me. My name is Ruth, and this blog is to document my journey into the world of recycled art and crafts. After spending just under 20 years as a jeweler, making luxury items I tired of the field. The ever changing gold and silver prices, the competition and the limited scope of the work grew old tired and uninspiring to me and I decided to move on and look for a new creative outlet.

I have a great respect for materials on the whole, and love used things so I have a hard time with how consumerist our society has become. I have decided to join those who are reworking products, transforming them into workable materials in order to make something completely different out of them. You can read more on my intentions and thought s on my first post here.

Other than that, I also have a life of course. I spend a lot of time with my 2 children, one cat and one man 🙂

    I love the idea behind your blog. I love to re-purpose old things for new uses. I’m officially a follower!
