Material Details: We started using wine barrels for jewelry after our partner in the wine business, Adega Northwest had a barrel that was no longer usable for wine, and they asked if we could use it for anything. We were excited at the opportunity to incorporate the wine barrel into new pieces, and so started experimenting with the wood, which catapulted the story of how our collaboration with them grew into both jewelry and wine.
