Sounds Like Treble

Taking an upbeat approach to recycling, Wesla Bay Weller transforms spent elements of musical instruments to create a pendant that is sure to drum up some attention. She fashions a treble clef or bass silhouette out of a circle snipped from a spent cymbal, which is made of a lustrous bronze alloy of copper and tin. Each charm is suspended from twisted recycled nickel and steel guitar strings, and joined with a delicate tendril of brass wire. The finished piece hangs from a stylish antiqued silver-finish brass chain. Handcrafted in Los Angeles, California.

Captivated by the process of creating jewelry, Wesla Bay Weller came to jewelry design after she took a metalsmithing class for fun. A graphic designer and illustrator by trade, Wesla studied illustration at Parsons School of Design and earned a BFA in graphic design at Cooper Union in New York.

Wanting to work with recycled materials, she hit upon the idea of using discarded and broken parts from musical instruments. The Upbeat Jewellery collection combines recycled and repurposed musical instrument materials with Wesla's love for music, narrative and craftsmanship to make playful, wearable art. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her partner.Wanting to work with recycled materials, she hit upon the idea of using discarded and broken parts from musical instruments.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Drum Cymbal Pendant:

    My sister loved it, not jus because of how pretty it is. The fact that the materials are upcycled and handmade, made this the gift even more special. She said when she read the background story, she cried and fell in love with it more.
