Meet Busted Trumpet!

Tell us a little about you and your creations.

I work from my dreamy 20th story apartment that faces downtown Tulsa. It's beautiful and definitely an inspiration to have such an amazing backdrop while I work. I have two sweet felines, Frenchie and Hansel. I am involved in our local craft community as a member of make:Tulsa, our local craft group for businesses. My hobbies include spending time with friends, Zumba, sleeping, checking out shows/movies on Netflix and reading.

 I create jewelry out of found objects and mostly utilize epoxy resin in my creations.  I love playing around with different patterns and mediums.  Coming up with new products is kind of a snowball effect; each product builds on each other to make something new and more unique as I continue to create!  I have a passion for creating and am so grateful to put my passion to work full-time.

Where did your business name come from?

A few years ago, I was longing to start up a jewelry business. Coming up with a name is always the hard part! A friend of mine had a broken trumpet he found at the thrift store, and through a mix happenstance and giggles Busted Trumpet was born.

What do YOU love about your products?

I love the colors and patterns! I love how the resin mixes with the colors and patterns to make them bigger and bolder. Each piece I create is like a little piece of candy, and I love candy! I always want to create more.

What sets your creations apart from others?

From my logo to my products, my style is very sleek and clean with eye-pleasing lines and subtle pops of color. I’m all about the simplicity of the piece telling a big story.

Where do you find inspiration?

If y’all could hear the voices in my head, you’d understand.

What craft would you like to learn more about?

I’m interested in wood burning right now.

 How would you describe your work in three words?
