The Men’s Necklace Collection is designed and hand-forged exclusively by award-winning eco-artist Paul Shampine. Necklace pendants and the AERO-Gravity keychains are solely made from reclaimed material (aluminum and copper). Other materials range from Army surplus paracord and keyrings to a Formula 1 tire.
Most of Paul’s work, including a collection of contemporary abstract paintings and sculpture are themed around his active lifestyle as a triathlete and his personal connection with nature and Her preservation.
From the artist..."The definition of “sustainable art” is quite broad. For me, it started 20 years ago with a rusted, ruby red Ford F150 pickup creeping through South Boston, negotiating a small scrap yard of assorted metals bouncing in the back.
DesigningThe Distillery entrance was my first eco-public project (1998) and the start of what I love doing to this day…transforming post-consumer/industrial waste into something aesthetically pleasing and of value.
