Uncorked and Reloaded is about transforming items that are not commonly used in jewelry into beautiful and surprising accessories. They salvage antique & vintage jewelry and fuse these items with antique buttons, corks, silverware, bullets, fan pulls, & more, giving new life to both as wearable art. Each piece is unique and full of personality. Maker Erin Brackett lives in Elizabethton, TN, a small town right outside of Johnson City, TN. She has been making jewelry on and off since her days in high school, where she learned the basics. She started Uncorked and Reloaded approximately a year ago while being a stay at home mom to her two children, Adelayda – 4 and Nolyn – 3. She works her business around her husband's full time job as a State Trooper and their family's schedule.
