My (real) name is Barbara but pretty much everyone calls me Babs!
I love crafts, and I tried my hands on a few but the one that I have enjoyed the most in the last year is making jewellery (or jewelry, up to you!) ;-).
Some of my pieces are just a last minute idea, some of them are a bit more thought-through...and that is why they are not there yet! :-)
I love vintage markets and that is where I look for inspiration and also rare pieces I can use to make some of my designs. I love the elegance of Renaissance or Victorian times, the glamour of the 20s and the bold graphic style of 70s. I could spend hours looking and browsing (and also spending money!). Sometimes I buy something for myself (cannot deny!) and some other times it makes me happy thinking that someone else could enjoy a gorgeous unique thing from the past that has been treasured and well kept for so long.
I find It fascinating that a dress, a clasp or a brooch could have so much to tell ...a story of belonging to someone else, of being somewhere else. It's a tale to make and tell!! :-)
So this is why here, in my shop, you will see jewellery that has a bit of vintage vibe and some that hasn't. In either cases, it's all designed and handmade by me.
I also sell clothes in my shop...those are not made by me though but they are pure vintage treasures!
Also I am more than happy to take commission. Please contact me with any queries you might have.

I hope you enjoy your visit. You can also follow me on...
