Skills and Techniques
I try to recycle as much of a vintage piece as I can. Including jump rings and clasps. I tend to be a perfectionist when it comes to my work and will sometimes rework a piece a dozen times. I don't just "slap something together". Each piece is made with love. And is one of a kind. I love what I do, and do what I love!

For the love of vintage....
It all started as a little girl. Gazing at my grandma Nancy's jewelry tree in her hallway. All of my cousins would be outdoors playing and I would remain inside, fixated on the beautiful bling! Once in a while my grandmother would let me sit in the center of her large bed and hold the tree. I would run my small fingers over each piece, taking it the beauty.
My grandma is gone now, but that tree inspired my love of vintage jewelry. I am still amazed, and still in love! I love to salvage it by the boxload and give it new beauty. I am the same little girl just a bit older :) These designs are for you, my grandmama..
