"Crash by Minabea" is the brainchild of jewelry artist Christi Schimpke whose studio is located inside her husband's Los Angeles body shop. It is there that Christi has her pick of crashed late model European luxury autos. Utilizing traditional metal smithing techniques, she creates fashion forward jewelry for men and women. Every eco-friendly item is crafted by hand and completely unique. The black bracelet was created from a late model Mercedes and comes with a certificate listing the model and the year. The cuff measures approximately 3 1/2" x 1 1/8". The bracelet chain is stainless steel.
