Good Carma Jewelry is made by Eric and Melynda Candee in Sunny Salida, Colorado. We make our jewelry from vintage automobile metal, other reclaimed metals and stainless steel.
Inspired by the philosophy of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, in order to reduce waste and conserve the Earth’s natural resources, we go a step further to “UPCYCLE” what would soon become trash in a landfill into fun and fabulous, wearable art jewelry.
We harvest and reclaim metal ourselves in trips to auto salvage yards around Colorado and the West. We are drawn to a pallet of colors from vintage automobiles from the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s and love the patina of old paint on metal.
Inspired by such patinas, we also paint and patina stainless steel, ourselves. And to provide an artistic contrast between the old and the new, some of our designs include raw stainless steel.
