This bracelet has really cool vintage serial plates!
There is three layers to this design. The foundation layer is a vintage 1960 metal car tab for a license plate. The red color is so vibrant with its scratches & paint chips. Next is a black serial plate from a 1970 Massey Ferguson combine, which was repurposed into scrap iron in Rice, MN. Truely a rare find.
To top off all that…is a silver heart I hand-cut & stamped from a scrap piece of metal. LOVE!
Then I attached it to a recycled tractor inner tube band using a mixture of rivets.

Heart size 1.25” x 1”
Band width 2.25”

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!
