Makeshift Jewelry and Accessories by Devin Johnson
Devin Johnson has always been interested in how things work and how they're made. His parents fostered this curiosity by giving him old and broken things to disassemble and explore. This tinkering time led him to putting items together to create wearable art through MakeShift Accessories, his studio & gallery in Northfield, MN.
Devin tells a story about humanity with every piece by using environmentally friendly and sustainable materials. He uses a variety of recycled, salvaged, antique, and found materials from all corners of life. These characteristics, which are often very mechanical and industrial, are brought to the surface in Devin’s work, as he forges each into a finished piece.
