I love being able to make something beautiful out of many different items! To start with an idea and end with something nice to look at and useful, is what I enjoy doing.
Jewelry making is one of my passions. I enjoy the hunt of the beads and components at auctions, yard sales, flea markets and antique shops and shows. Finding vintage pieces and reworking them into new, wearable necklaces, bracelets, and earrings brings me happiness knowing that I have been able to recycle old pieces and make them into a new piece of jewelry. Each and every piece of jewelry is original and one-of-a-kind. So once it is sold, that piece is gone forever and and will not be remade. A lot of the jewelry is a mixture of old and new. I love vintage crystals and components. The way crystals shine in the light and on the body brings a touch of elegance to any outfit. Other older beads bring a classic look to a piece of jewelry. I do enjoy putting beads of one piece with parts of another piece to make new wearable pieces of art.
Each purse and tote are made from brand new fabric unless specified in the description of the item as recycled or repurposed fabric. Every bag is sewn with the utmost attention to details. Metal clasps are magnetic and button closures are vintage buttons. I enjoy visualizing and putting together the totes and bags.
Another hobby I enjoy is painting. Seeing something that inspires me to paint it on canvas is another thing I love to do.
About me: My husband and I like to hang out at home and do projects around the house. My two sons are grown and on their own. I hope you enjoy my jewelry and purse collections. New pieces are added on a regular basis so do check back for new pieces. If you have any comments or suggestions, please email me at email@example.com
