Jewelry created with vintage jewelry, beads, and components.
This is such a fun collection to design. I search flea markets, antique shops, and garage sales for vintage jewelry, beads, and components. I repair and restore the vintage items and incorporate them into assemblage jewelry. I use American-made brass components whenever possible and enhance them by applying patinas and specialty paints to get the perfect effect.
Most of these items are OOAK (One-of-a-Kind). So, if you see something you like, grab it.
If you have treasures in your jewelry box (or a box on your closet shelf), I can create unique jewelry to showcase those items. All of the pieces are conversation starters and a unique way to share your family history. It is a wonderful way to pass on vintage treasures to the next generation.
