Hello Awesome Sh*t Club,
My brilliant idea is to harmoniously create pieces taken from old scrap metal, transforming them into multi-functional pieces. I study mechanical engineering and realize we over-consume, producing a lot of waste. Therefore, due to my passions for preservation of the Earth and love for design, I will invent purposeful, unique products that respect our precious space. For my final project at school, I designed a mechanism that hides a secret compartment and am currently designing shelves that also function as cabinets for objects. I am also a silversmith apprentice, taking old silver coins and re-working them into jewelry. My goal is to ultimately make tiny mechanism that reveal hidden compartments, housing healing crystals and herbal tinctures, providing the customer with an object full of positive energy that will give them strength. I love metalworking because each piece contains so much of the energy put into production, thus each piece is very powerful.
I have many items I would like to create, however, am very limited due to the expenses of tools and the small-scale machinery required to manufacture these products. Therefore, I am pitching my idea of recycling our waste, reinvented it into pieces that are multi-functional, empowering and inspiring.
Thank you for the time and opportunity,
