“Saving the planet one platter at a time ” Mimi Roy
When asked why I choose to make art I smile and simply say because it makes me happy. I am delighted every time I find a vintage treasure to upcycle into a piece of jewelry from its dented, scratched, and history-filled surface. I upcycle English silver, Turkish copper and Indian brass plates, platters and serving trays into one of a kind jewelry and accessories. Each piece intrigues me because there are so many secrets, history, and mystery locked in their blemished and tarnished exteriors. I love the challenge of sawing into the metal, torching, filing, sanding, forming, polishing, and finally designing and assembling into a wearable piece.
