Want someone to stop you and demand, "I need to know where you bought that!” Well, look no further. Half of this business is one-of-a-kind jewelry crafted from recycled, vintage NYC traffic light lenses. (Yes, the ones that once hung here!)
The other half is jewelry made from antique watch and clock parts. Two very different looks, but both up-cycling pieces of our past, and given a new life. Want to literally give someone a piece of the Big Apple? Or a piece from the steampunk trend? This is jewelry you can’t find anywhere else.
