Meet Barbara, our Autumn Eco Artisan in Focus

Barbara has been a consigned artist to the  Reverse Emporium  since early 2021, bringing her beautifully constructed jewellery to our eclectic collection of gifts.

Under the label,  Inya Ears , Barbara salvages vintage tins and preloved pewter ornaments to repurpose into truly unique pieces.

 As our Autumn Artist in Focus, we asked Barbara a series of  questions to get more insight into her creative process.
