We are explorers of New York City’s history. We find artifacts in landfills, construction sites, shorelines, creek, marsh beds, privy vaults and cisterns. Some things are found with a metal detector or by eye on the surface.

We are artists and historians, creating art and jewelry from what we find. We strive to present a small fraction of our city’s past by bringing these objects to light, in the form of a decorative object and wearable art.

We sell our bottles and jewelry at the Grand Bazaar NYC flea market on Sundays until End of October. 77th Street and Columbus Avenue in New York City.

Come see us at the Union Square Holiday Market. November 21 - December 24, 2019.
