As an artist, I'm known for repurposing objects into my paintings (My art site nataliestarnes.com was featured on Recyclart in April of 2011). After working in the wine industry over the past two years, I had a vision recently and chose to act on it. Repurposing wine corks, I create unique one-of-a-kind rings. Each cork is hand cut, shaped, filed, and embedded with an eye-catching Swarovski Elements crystal. I make original rings for friends and consumers, rings for wineries, and custom orders for clients who want a memento of their special occasion.
