Mechanical Chic – the Jewelry of Connie Verrusio
Fascinated by the way things work, Connie Verrusio creates radical new jewelry forms from leftover functions.
Connie Verrucio who uses mechanical “junk” to make fine jewelry. Gears, lugpins, screws, nails, old film–they don’t sound like the subjects of fine jewelry, but that’s just what Connie Verrusio turns them into.
“I am fascinated by all things mechanical,” she says, “and the choices I make reflect a deep reverence for the quality of workmanship, all too often a thing of the past.”
It’s steampunk without the attitude.
