Laura Beamer

Artist Laura Beamer resides in Oakridge, Oregon with her husband Benjamin. Her lively and spirited jewelry made from recycled bottle caps, vinyl records and license plates is a way for her to get the most out of something. And this fun attitude is not just reflected in her work, but in her life as well.

Beamer collects these found objects and then combines them with sterling silver using rivets and cold connections to create casual, but captivating pieces for all ages and fashion styles. This bright artist began her craft career in 1992 when she bought a loom from a neighbor. She taught herself how to weave, but unfortunately had to quit because she was having lower back pain while working at the loom. This injury led to her line of recycled jewelry in 1999. "I looked at those bottle caps in a different way," Beamer says. "It's really cool that every bottle cap has it's own little piece of art!"

Beamer can be spotted buying old records at Goodwill, and her husband Ben and she will even request discarded beer bottle caps at restaurants despite the raised eyebrows that usually ensue.

"It feels good to extend the life of something a little longer," she says. "We live in such a disposable world."
