Halbur’s mother, Joleen Brincks, chooses most of the dishes, which largely come from Goodwill, while Halbur does the assembly.

When Halbur first began experimenting with the craft a few years ago, he used glue to hold the dishes together. However, now the dishes are held together with hardware in order to make them more weather resistant.

Bedeian then demonstrated how she sizes the jewelry.
