Andi on today's Sonoran Living segment with owner of JAM, Shauna Jean:
"So, what do you do with the many pieces of jewelry that you have been given over the years?
You know, the broach that your Great Grandma gave you that is missing a stone, or the single earing that you know you will never find the match for. I store all of mine in a drawer that only gets opened maybe once a year.
Shauna Kupetz, owner of JAM , on the other hand, turns her junk jewelry into a beautiful jewelry topiary, and now you can too.
