Moondance Jewelry & Artwork is committed to producing a unique one-of-a-kind product that encourages originality in those who wear & display it. I don't assume that my customers' personal style are identical - nor do we want to be.
Please contact me with any questions. I love hearing from you.
Artwork & Jewelry made from recycled copper & metal.
Using traditional darkroom methods, I print b/w images onto copper & metal plates. I then layer these images with recycled materials to create a 2D sculpture.
As I produced more artwork, I kept having lots of small scrap metals. With these smaller pieces I designed a line of unique recycled jewelry. I use almost anything I can find to create my pieces. That is why each piece is one of a kind. I get most of my materials from the metal bins at the recycle facility in Missoula. I use wire, pipe, and old copper pieces in my jewelry. I even “harvest” pieces from old electronic components.
All of the patena copper is done by hand. I have several “recipes” I use to create different variations of aged and rusted copper. As much fun as it is to create each piece of jewelry, I equally enjoy being the mad scientist that ages and stains my copper.
