Verde Mountain

One-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories from unique sources

It all started with an old hockey stick...
Once upon a time, Reed Prescott had an old hockey stick, a band saw, and an idea.

So, he took that hockey stick and cut it into slices, sanded those slices and matched them into pairs, applied a coat of finish, and added some hardware to create earrings, which he took to the National Women's Youth Hockey Tournament in South Burlington, Vermont.

People loved the earrings - and the idea.

This led to the next step: offering to patrons of this event to take pieces of their son’s or daughter’s personal hockey stick and create gift items for them.

This got him thinking: what if he created a service where he made useful personal items and gifts from those artifacts we all have in our possession which have lost their usefulness but still hold too much meaning for us to throw them out?

So he started cutting into other items: canoe paddles, tennis rackets, field hockey sticks, chair parts, barn boards, water skis, and more…

The possibilities really are endless...
