You are going to love this site….Pyper Hugos’, You Got Mojo, features jewelry “made using reclaimed metals. Much of what I use is salvaged from old cars but I also like to incorporate the use of old signs, licenses plates, steel drums, and even metal from an old airplane! When out in the junk yard collecting metal used to create my jewelry, I’m on the hunt for anything with great color on it. I do not paint any of the metal used to create my work; all the original colors of paint are left intact and unaltered. I am intrigued by time and mother nature’s mark, evident in the raw beauty left behind. I work with each scratch and fading layer of paint to highlight the unique and untold story found within each piece of jewelry. I enjoy incorporating found objects within my designs for added interest and texture. All components are sterling silver and are hand forged. All recycled steel is individually hand cut and formed.”
