Story behind Found Whistles I have always been passionate about utilitarian objects, especially those that were designed with beauty and elegance. The whistles were all found objects. However, they were not made in silver and gold. I picked the 12 pieces that I loved and remade them to enhance their beauty and charm. All the whistles embody a unique story, mood, and style. Each one makes a different noise which only adds to their whimsical design. As I learned more about the history of the whistles, I discovered that they were used by the police and in the military as far back as the Roman Empire. Some were made as toys for children, others were found in boxes of crackers. Also, some whistles were used as civilian warning for British citizens during WWII. The 12 piece collection, called Echo is made in silver and is also available in 18k gold. Each one engraved ECHO and has my trademark.
