‘Green’ jewelry gets one-of-a-kind treatment at Union Jack
Christian Colbert got interested in found art when he got rid of his car and started walking — he discovered many items on the ground that looked impressive. With his artist’s eye, Colbert started Vagabond Jewels, a collection of pieces he has transformed into necklaces, rings, bracelets and other wearable art, usually decorated with crystals and Dia de los Muertos skulls. Colbert will be signing and talking about his pieces at Union Jack Saturday, and one lucky customer can even win a $300 piece!
