Connie Verrusio

Connie Verrusio

Raised in Chicago, Connie Verrusio now lives in New York's Hudson Valley, where she makes her jewelry by hand, often out of recycled mechanical objects. "I am fascinated by all things mechanical," she says, "and the choices I make reflect a deep reverence for the quality of workmanship, all too often a thing of the past."

If she were not an artist, she says she'd probably be a farmer.

        This bracelet looks really neat, but there is much more interesting and intricate stuff on this website for a lot less. Not a good buy.

        Comments about NAIL BANGLE:

        Stylish and durable as I am. I am the only girl of six boys so I play and work hard. Wearing my bracelet adds spark and reminds everyone around I am "not" just one of the guys. They forget occasionally. It's great! I can wear it without worrying about breaking it like alot of other jewelry pieces.

        Only one problem that I have ran into is that it can snag or catch onto item no matter which direction the nail points. It only happens every once in awhile so it is not that big of a con.

        Brilliant bracelet...very similar to designs by a particular well-known deconstructivist fashion designer, but much more affordable! I'm delighted to have found this great piece!
