Giveaway from Marchello Art! (this giveaway is now closed)

If you love fun, unique, upcycled items then you are going to love Marchello Art. When I first started this blog I ask my readers what they wanted to see on here and some of you said jewelry made out of silverware. I had never heard of jewelry made out of silverware so I went on the search and look what I found.

Marchello Art sent me a bracelet to review. The bracelets are so cool and so different. I can about bet you would be the talk at the office if you walk in wearing one of these fun bracelets.

Not only does Marchella Art make bracelets but they make fun signs out of silverware, angels and other things.

Let's learn more about Marchella Art:

When did you open your Etsy shop? I actually opened an account with Etsy with the intent to sell last July, but I was so busy that I was not able to list things for sale until the end of March. A few of my customers recommended Etsy to me, so I thought that I would give it a try.


Can you tell me a little about yourself? I love to create. I always have. Ever since I was a little kid, I have been making interesting and unusual things. I am a student at the University of Michigan Dearborn campus, even though I live in Ann Arbor. I love to try new things and to be adventurous. Art, to me, is a way to express my self and pursue my passions. In addition to creating new things, I love music, good food and spending time with my wonderful girlfriend.



How did you start making art out of silverware? Actually, my dad was the one who started it. When he opened up his napkin at Holiday's Restaurant in Ann Arbor, he found that his fork was oddly bent. With a spark of creativity, he turned two stainless steel forks into the first fork angel. He soon converted into silver-pate because it looks nicer and is easier to bend. In late 2007, he inspired me to make silverware art. I have been creating new, unique things ever since.

Do you take custom orders? Yes. I love making new things out of recycled silverware! Many of my designs have come from custom requests. Many of my custom orders have been large pieces, such as a 36 inch crane that was made for Creekside Grill and Bar located in Ann Arbor, Michigan.


Buy It - This would make another fun Mother's Day gift.

Win It - Marchello Art is offering one of my readers a bracelet similar to the one pictured above. This giveaway is open to my readers in the US and Canada.
