Lost & Forged is the product of my passion for creative metalwork and jewelry making. I seek out old objects – largely discarded, irrelevant and forgotten ones – and give them new purpose and beauty. I shape and re-purpose them using traditional silversmith hand forging techniques, sculpting, engraving, polishing, soldering, stone setting and more. For my main material, I focus on silver flatware – so many beautiful pieces lie stowed away, underutilized and forgotten, waiting for new life. I also use vintage watches and other recycled materials. My creations fit a lot of possible category terms: upcycled, recycled, repurposed, altered, found object art, etc.
I make my all of my jewelry and other metalwork crafts in my home workshop in Silver Spring, Maryland, using recycled vintage and antique materials.
