Earth Faerie

Handcrafted Jewellery Made From Recycled Materials

ABOUT ME

 

Welcome To Earth Faerie!  Thanks for your interest in my jewellery.  My work is inspired by the natural world and in response to our throwaway society.  I try wherever possible to reuse items with a history that have been discarded and might otherwise end up in landfill.  I take the old, discarded and transform them into wearable art pieces.  Semi-precious stones are set and strung on re-used copper.  Old leather coats, skirts, and belts are turned into cuffs.

I am self-taught and make all of the jewellery personally and by hand.   My main tools are my eyes, fingers, and hand tools.  The copper wire is hand-formed, cut, cold-connected, textured, forged, embossed, riveted, pierced, soldered, and/or oxidized.   Many pieces are embellished with beads and sometimes found objects

My passion for using copper wire is because it can be re-purposed to beautiful jewellery.   For me, this makes scrap copper a precious material because of its durability and longevity.   I feel a responsibility as a maker, creating and adding more things into this world that I look to what materials can be repurposed and transformed into something beautiful rather than end up in a landfill.
