City Owl emerged from Ashley’s fascination with America’s Industrial Era and its timeworn but hardcore treasures. After years in architecture and design, she brought that aesthetic to Brooklyn Flea with awesome salvaged furniture. While sifting through broken down barns and old factories to bring the weathered and cool to Brooklyn’s hippest, she ran across many intriguing objects of the smaller variety, which led to her current line of found object jewelry. Her craft is still rooted in her passion for the finely crafted remnants of our past—those things that have a story to tell.
