Crash Jewelry: Made From The Metal Of Luxury Cars
Love the idea of owning a luxury car but not the price tag? CRASH Jewelry makes it possible for you to own a piece of your favorite luxury car.
Christi Schimpke, the owner of CRASH, says, “It takes people a few minutes to understand what we are creating, and I usually have to repeat myself a few times when someone asks me about a piece of CRASH jewelry. I suppose it is difficult to accept that a car can become something other than a car. I simply tell them if you can drive it, you can wear it.”
Each piece of CRASH jewelry is made by hand from discarded sheet metal. The process begins when the metal from a door, hood, fender, or quarter panel is being replaced on a luxury car such as a Ferrari, Maserati, Audi, Mercedes or Porsche. Instead of finding its way into a landfill, CRASH repurposes this metal and gives it a new life.
Their line up includes cuffs, bangles, rings, earrings, cufflinks, necklaces, and accessories from the metal of luxury automobiles.
