You’ll love everything about this bracelet, the texture, the colors, the patina, the mix metals…
It is made with three layers; the foundation is a vintage 1965 car license that has a distinctive rusty metal appearance. Next is the aged copper section, it is stamped with cursive lettering & holes. I believe it to be a vintage watchmaker stamping prototype. Years ago, I purchased a box of vintage pocket watch parts in Wisconsin & this was included in my finds. It’s super rare & one-of-a-kind.
Then I topped everything off with this stunning ornate brass cross with a turquoise finish. All resting on a tractor inner tube band. Very unique.
Band width 2”
Ornament size 3 5/8” x 2 1/8”
Mix metal rivets
Double silver snap closure
All metals are base metals

RURAL ROOTS + SLOW STYLE ART
I’m a self-taught artist from Minnesota-you betcha!! I enjoy taking discarded materials & creating them into new means of usefulness. My choice of medium is tractor & bicycle inner tubes along with found objects of interest.
My art is a slow style jewelry & handbag atelier founded in 2008, my focus is ethically crafted in timeless silhouettes that contain boldness & driven by my passion to be uncommon. I don’t do cookie-cutter!
All my styles are 100% handmade to be minimal waste-meaning only small amounts of the inner tube are left over after cutting, sewing & assembling my work. I believe that having a propose in creating my art softens the carbon footprint we leave behind. Together we can make a conscious choice to stand for our values.
Black is my happy color!
