Diane Detzel, creator of Sole Arts Jewelry, makes beautiful and unique earrings and necklaces using the most unusual components: old New York City traffic lights! She hand cuts the colored lenses and then tumbles them like sea glass to remove all sharp edges. She then makes one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, some resembling the original stop lights, and some simply highlighting the beautiful shapes and colors of the glass. She has another line of gorgeous, Steampunk style jewelry made from pieces of old watches.
Meet Diane in person on Sundays at the Greenflea! And take home a little piece of New York City.
