Long Lake Studio’s ‘Upcycled by Design’ jewelry is created with an eye to reusing, recycling and renewing.

Ann's whimsical steampunk creations expose the intricate beauty, the seldom-seen treasure that is contained within the once-valued wristwatch. Fine vintage china, now damaged, discarded or unwanted is carefully upcycled to become heirloom jewelry, and lastly, printed circuit board is transformed into wearable pieces of art.

A love of history and all things vintage affords Ann the opportunity to make old things new again as she cleverly breathes life into once-valued but no longer useful items that rest in desk drawers and dark cabinets.

While there is a strong focus on design and the use of upcycled materials is a common thread, Ann’s work is wearable and well-constructed. Her pieces may be purchased online, in several island retail outlets and at adjudicated fairs on Vancouver Island and the lower mainland.
