Well I sure am a glutton for handmade items on Etsy! How many of these stores have I written about now? I’ve lost count. But I love seeing such original work, and that’s why it’s one of my favorite things to write about! Handmade jewelry is a decently large market, but it’s tough out there to stand out, much like it is in the denim industry. One thing that helps super creative projects stand out a lot to me is handmade goods repurposed out of material that otherwise would have been thrown away. I recently tripped across a pretty neat jewelry line through an article on EarthPorm.com, called Calisto Jewelry. Carolin Breeze, a 23 year old film student, discovered her father’s creative talents after he lost his job and took up a project creating beautiful pieces of jewelry using scrap metal. His first piece was presented to Carolin after he used some of her old jewelry along with some copper wire to create it! Caroline had stated, โ€œMy father had never made jewelry before, and there it was, simple yet perfect and annoyingly beautiful.โ€ Since then, the two ventured off and founded Calisto Jewelry, building up an incredible collection of pendents, earrings, broaches and other items with copper wire, silver, brass, gemstones and other crystals. I think I’m in love with the entire line!

I love how much these seem to scream “steampunk,” but they have their own touch that’s tough to classify. The Celestial Sphere #1 and Fleur-De-Lis Copper Bracelet above have got to be my favorite, along with the Seed of Life Copper Pendant below. Just gorgeous! I could see wearing one of these to a festival or two…but they are neat enough just to wear anywhere as unique conversational pieces!

This Biohazard Copper Pendant above has kind of a post-apocalyptic or spacey awesomeness quality to it, doesn’t it? It almost makes me think a lot of these pieces could fit in Bladerunner or The Fifth Element…not quite apocalyptic but, you get me, I guess?
