Vintage meets modern in Larissa eco-friendly collection. Most components used are deadstock, which means they were made to be sold long ago but missed their chance. Traveling across the US and Europe, Larissa explores the depths of flea markets and deadstock warehouses to find cameos, switchblades and lockets. She gives these vintage treasures a new opportunity to shine by transforming them into modern, edgy jewelry.
Whether on the hunt for unique objects or hammering them into hot bracelets, it’s all about the process. Once Larissa and her loot have safely returned to her home in the Twin Cities, she doesn’t go far to start creating new designs. Larissa’s studio and home are one in the same, no factory involved. Using methods including drilling and soldering, stamping and hammering, her collection is fervently handmade.
