Uppsy Daisy is everything upcycled and everything vintage.
Before my mom started her findings company, she collected vintage stampings and vintage glass stones from old jewelers warehouse stock on the east coast. The majority of what I am listing on Etsy are these original pieces. The ages of this old stock varies from 30-130 years old. It's hard telling what the actual age of some of these pieces are since they still produce a few of these styles. As time goes on, the quality of newly stamped pieces change. The type of metal that's used and also the thickness of the metal. Older pieces were heavy struck in many cases and a higher copper to brass content was used.
In addition to the old original brass stampings, they upcycle the vintage glass that we collected. When an item is described as "Upcycled", either some of the piece or all of it is...
