CRASH Jewelry creates cuffs, bangles, earrings, necklaces and cufflinks from the metal of automobiles that have been in minor accidents. Christi Schimpke, the founder of CRASH Jewelry, conceived the idea of fashion jewelry from cars when she moved her studio into the Los Angeles body shop, Beverly Coachcraft.
CRASH is distinct from other contemporary jewelry. Recycled metal is cut, shaped, polished or etched while still maintaining the original factory paint. Each piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that states the type of car it is derived from and the date of manufacture.
CRASH Jewelry achieves craftsmanship of the highest quality and truly unique design. The use of cast-off materials to create luxury, eco-friendly jewelry makes it the perfect gift for the car enthusiast, the ecologically minded or the person who simply loves beautiful art jewelry that tells a story.
We are very happy to offer the marvelous pieces from the CRASH Jewelry collection.
