As you can see, I've changed my business name from "Trash-to-Treasure Creative Recycling" to "B. Hueting Creates."

It's still me, and I will continue to create jewelry using copper, silver and recycled metals and materials. 

If you would like to pick up your order at my house, the coupon code is - pick up.   (You can message me, and we will set up a time for a porch pick up)

 

About Me

 

 

 

 

I've been creating things as long as I can remember. As a child, I would take discarded items from the attic and basement and create art. I was lucky my parents never scolded me, but instead encouraged me by praising these creations.

 
 

 

 

Now, after receiving my BFA and working as a graphic designer, I have returned to my childhood ways but with a graphic design approach. I love learning new techniques and experimenting with new and recycled materials. Challenging myself in this way leads to new ideas and enables my work to keep evolving.    

Currently, I've been working with sterling silver and stones and also experimenting with combining recycled metals with the sterling. This has made learning metal smithing techniques important and my primary focus right now. I continue to use the copper gutters we replaced off our house and the large collection of vintage and decorative tins I have.  Besides selling my jewelry at local arts and craft fairs, you can find it at these locations.
