Bird Sculptures

They were making their art long before Steampunk was a genre

 jim Mullan is a self-taught artist with an enthusiasm for nature and history.  As a teenager he became intrigued with old watches, vintage toys, and scientific instruments.  In the process of taking things  apart and putting them back together, he began pairing some of the old pieces with his favorite things found in nature, such as, bird, dragonfly and animal components to create one of a kind mixed media jewelry and assemblages.

Tori’s passion for antiques and jewelry began as a child.  Her inspiration was her father, a jeweler and antique watch collector.  While working in his jewelry store she became interested in the vintage stones and spare parts that her father used for repairing jewelry and watches.  She set her sights on designing jewelry and started creating unique one of a kind earrings and bracelets. She met Jim in 1985 at a show and they soon discovered that they shared many of the same interests in old watches, jewelry and antiques.

The couple combined their individual talents and formed a partnership in work and in life.  

 Here are a few of the pieces we just received from them!
