offbeat accents

Purpose: recycle/upcycle
Products: jewelry, tie and money clips, keychains


I began transforming irreparable musical instruments into jewelry in 2011 after I made a pair of earrings for my wife, and they were a huge hit. 

As an avid musician and instrument repair technician, I insist on fixing any instruments that can be fixed, and only I only make jewelry out of otherwise lost causes. My creations come from my workshop in California.

A perfect gift for a musician or music lover, these unique pieces may be made from an instrument part, such as a key from a clarinet or flute, or a turning key or peg from a bass or violin, or a piece of guitar wire. Others are recycled and hand forged metal from a cymbal, flute, or other instrument. Visit Offbeat Accents.
