Recycled Jewelry? Adorn Yourself the GREEN Way!

These 2" long pair of unique earrings have been added to my "must have" list as well. They are fashioned from vintage plastic and glass beads. The pieces are assembled by hand, without soldering, to create a light, free-moving feel. Threepeats has LOTS of cool jewelry pieces made from vintage items. See for yourself!

This fine silver [.999] pendant is made from an actual leaf with precious metal clay. DID YOU KNOW THAT PMC (precious metal clay) IS ACTUALLY A RECYCLED PRODUCT? During photo processing, silver is recovered. That silver is mixed in with a binder making a clay-like material that can be worked, rolled, formed, stamped, etc. and then fired to create beautiful, fine silver pieces. Made by Punky Jane.

Talina, love the jewelry you are showing. Also take a look at my stuff at www.hemlockhollow.etsy.com

I am also using fine silver - the recycled silver and making leaves, wings from natural objects. I believe in using reclaimed metal clay instead of mined sterling silver.

Love you guys, hope to get up to Kingsport soon. By the way, blueberries sold at the market up there are from Middle Creek Farm here in Greeneville.

The Basics

Michael and Talina Ripper met online and when they met in person, they knew they had found something special, a once in a lifetime love. Michael obtained BFAs in both Wood Design and Ceramics from ECU. Talina has always been a creative/artistic spirit, but has her BSN from ETSU and still works as an RN. Talina has three sons, Seth (17), Aaron (8), and Jacob (7). Michael and Talina have a son together, Quinn, who is 17 months. They are getting settled in their downtown loft just around the corner from Michael's studio and the gallery. Their dream of living their art is coming true!
