"Patina Market" is a culmination of my love of languages, cultures, and travel. I love making handcrafted jewelry that is both unique and interesting. I have a love for anything that is time worn and tells a story. In my spare time, I scour Flea markets, Estate sales and Thrift stores to find interesting treasures and inspiration for my one-of-a-kind jewelry designs. I up-cycle vintage jewelry that is no longer in use and turn them into unique pieces that are more modern and wearable. My design aesthetic is exotic and world inspired, eclectic with a mix of rustic and edgy. My jewelry collection is designed and handcrafted in Linden Hills, MN but my beads are globally sourced. My materials are a mixture of African trade beads, artisan metals, cultural artifacts, raw stones and semi-precious gems. Statement necklaces are my favorite to create because they can be as individual as the person who wears them..
