Architectual Salvage!

Greetings everyone!

I made a blog entry the other day about WONDERFUL architectural salvage which you can see directly below this post!

I LOVE salvaged treasures!

The lovely and extremely talented Ms.Priscilla Moore from:


on Etsy was gracious enough to share some of here fabulous architectural jewels with us!

This is what she said about the items pictured below! (click on the photos for a larger view!)

"The Androgyne" was cobbled together from a beautiful, old, unburied porcelain faucet handle fixture. The valve was routed out where it had oxidized into one piece, and filled with jeweler's epoxy and gemstones. It was then captured in a wrap of steel wire and suspended from a handmade chain. Now if I could only find "cold"!

The cuff was cobbled from a Victorian drawer pull escutcheon, tinted with permanent inks, collaged with a bit of text from an antique magazine, and finished off with a nice, rough garnet and a handmade catch. All was buffed and sealed in natural beeswax for a satiny, fragrant finish.

Lucky me, both pieces have homes now, and they are not part of the woodwork!
