Jewelry Artists

Pyper Hugos

Each piece of jewelry that I create is made using vintage automotive steel.  When out in the junk yard collecting metal used to create my jewelry, I'm on the hunt for anything with great color on it.  I do not paint any of the metal used to create my work, all the original car paint is left intact and unaltered.  I work with each scratch and fading layer of paint to highlight the unique and untold story found within each piece of jewelry.  I enjoy incorporating found objects within my designs for added interest and texture.  All components are sterling silver and are hand forged.  All recycled automotive steel is individually hand cut and formed.
