"Oil tanks are costly to cut up and recycle so the scrap yards don’t want them. I began using oil tanks, water tanks and propane tanks to save money because the steel was so expensive. I soon realized what I was doing. The recycling had become part of my life.
The material has a lot of character and always tells a life story. It has a lot more to say than a big, expensive sheet of new grey steel. Some tanks have many layers and colors of paint on them from being painted over the years to match houses and cottages." - Jean Pierre Schoss, Dog Bite Steel
On my last trip to Canada, I came across the work of Dog Bite Steel and became a fan. I love the quirky sense of humor found in each piece and wanted to share a smile with you.

We create jewelry objects made using vintage automotive steel that we personally salvage ourselves. Our work is often simple in form with a direct intent to accentuate the beauty of aging and imperfection within the salvaged car metal. We intentionally leave the original car paint intact and unaltered. The form, texture and colors of the old automotive steel continually inspire us to find new ways in which to express its beauty. Using cold form fabrication and sheet metal production techniques our work leans towards a refined, modern design aesthetic.

Owner/Artist Devin Johnson collects the artifacts of everyday life and fashions them into a wearable piece of art. All the work created in his Makeshift Studio is 100% reclaimed materials and 100% upcycled. Most material is salvaged at metal recycling facilities in the Midwest. The rivets are hand forged from scrap copper and aluminum wire. Makeshift is a family run studio based in historic Northfield, Minnesota.
This is created from asset tags from a soda bottling company in Miami. The edges are finished and affixed to a salvaged brass band with hand forged rivets. Each piece is one of a kind. I'm going to assume that if you are looking at a cuff, you already have one or two on top of your bathroom counter. I will share the measurement across the cuff - the widest part. So, the measurement across the widest part is 2.5". Compare that to the cuff you have to see if they match. The cuff is 1.5" wide. Devin finishes the edges beautifully so there are no sharp corners or edges. You receive the cuff pictured.

“I don’t play golf, but have handled more golf clubs than most golfers,” grins West Palm Beach artist Jeff Diamond. A dedicated recycler, Diamond repurposed clubs into art in 2006, when he debuted a bowl welded from repurposed golf club heads at the Orlando PGA Merchandise Show.
