Get to Know

Violets new Vintage was established nine years ago by me, Betsy Berberian. I am a full time artist living in San Francisco. I spend most days creating and creating always gives me new ideas. My Jewelry Line is called Violets new Vintage and it is an escape from our 'throw away' world. Violets new Vintage is a collection of environmentally sustainable jewelry I create from discarded electronic materials; mainly computer circuit boards. I study the natural pattern on the boards and cut and shape them to highlight and feature the beautiful, abstract patterns. My technique with the circuit boards has been refined through many hours of trial and error, practice and experimentation. I enjoy the challenge of using alternative materials because these materials allow me to speak out and display new uses for ordinary items. I hope people who see and wear my jewelry will be inspired to find new uses for 'used' items and will discover beauty in ordinary objects. My circuit board jewelry has been featured on the BBC, in Tech Republic, 7X7 Insiders Guide and the San Francisco Examiner. Always feel free to contact me with any questions you have or to request a custom order. Just click the 'contact seller' button on the sidebar and I will answer promptly.
