Denny Dicks has one of a kind jewelry that features photography from all over the world. He has photos from churches, train stations and farmers markets to name a few that he edits and reduces down to fit each piece. The result is fantastic. Each item is labeled with where the photo was taken. You have to see them up close to appreciate them.

John Marchello creates jewelry, angels, and bud vases from recycled silverware. Here is how he got started:
I got started crafting silverware jewelry early in college. My dad had started experimenting with bending silverware and didn’t have the time or energy to take it to more than one store and a few craft shows. I was an ambitious student who wanted to put what I learned in school to work in real life. Creating silverware jewelry allowed me to do this. My favorite part of making silverware jewelry is the process of turning something old and dirty into a new object that can be cherished once again. I believe that our culture has trained people to not regard what happens with products after they’ve been used, and this disposable mentality leads to all kinds of harm to our world and ourselves. My goal is to inspire people to reconsider how they use products.
Classic Jewelry Creations
We’re Deb and Lary. After working in the corporate world for over 30 years, we wanted to develop a business of our own that would enable us to connect with our customers, express our creativity, and make people smile and feel good.
So…in 2014 we created Classic Jewelry Creations. Our jewelry is an eclectic combination of repurposed, vintage, and newly designed pieces. With some of our newly designed pieces, we often use metals such as copper and stainless steel. Our metal alloys of choice include pewter and brass. We also like to combine interesting metal components with natural stones that our earth has created.
Glass Bead Jewelry
I am drawn to a love of the natural world: rocks, plants, birds, and sea life. This interest finds expression in beads that are organic in design, color, and texture. I also am guided by a need to be organized and to be technically precise, as evidenced in beads that are more graphic in design. And always, my work is driven by my curiosity and desire to experiment and learn new techniques. Enjoy!
