Unique Personalized Silverware Jewelry and CreationsIn all my years of attending socials and dinners, I always remember that when the dishes of the main course were being cleared, someone would inevitably lean over and say, 'Keep your fork.'

Wine Barrel Furniture While visiting a local winery in the north of California, we noticed a bunch of unused barrels, piled up in a corner and ready to be discarded. We asked a few questions and learned about the chemical properties of oak itself and how it plays a significant role in wine making, affecting the color, flavor, and texture of the wine. …

Clocks Made from Recycled JunkEver since I can remember, I have been taking things apart. Trying to figure out what makes them tick. One day I was tinkering around and created a clock from a old computer hard drive. I showed a few people and they were impressed so I kept tinkering! My life has not been the same since!!…

Bracelets Made From Buttons SnoozeCrafts creates modern bracelets from antique buttons, and colorful bags and totes from plastic shopping bags. It all started with a cat and a hat . . . It was the usual scramble to fill my Christmas gift list. Over a family dinner in NYC, my niece admired a striped and felted wool hat I'd made my husband (her uncle), and hinted that she'd love one in purple and green--"but not green-green--you know, that kind of limey yellow-green..." (the only green I truly love--the first green of Spring).…

Scrapyard Sculpture Re-imagining recycled materials into art is my passion! My first trip to a scrap yard was in 1991. That trip unexpectedly touched a creative part in me. Seeing the enormous piles of scrap metal triggered a visual and visceral emotion. I instantaneously knew that my art forms would be transformed from that moment on.…

One of a kind clocks & cufflinks from recycled car parts Growing up in Los Gatos, California swinging a tennis racket was more common for Steven Shaver than swinging a hammer. “Tool time” would come later. He went on to study at San Diego State University and graduated in 1991 with a B.A. degree in International Business and completing industrial design courses at San Jose State University.…

Upcycled Inner Tube Bags & Accessories While medieval alchemists sought to turn lead into gold, we strive to turn useless stuff like blown-out inner tubes, old seatbelts and advertising banners into useful stuff like bags and wallets. Another word for this is upcycling. Recycling turns stuff into the same thing over and over again. Upcycling turns something of lesser value into something of greater value.…

Men's accessories made from old bicycle parts I love bikes. I love riding them, building them, fixing them, thinking about them, looking at them. A bike is the ultimate in transportation and recreation. I try to transfer this love and respect for bikes into art by recycling no-longer-useful parts. I also dabble in the skill of woodworking and am trying to put my own spin on things to make some unique items.…
