Cynthia L Peterson's Profile
Known to thousands of ebay designer-clients from 1999 through 2008 as "of.the.essence vintage beads", I opened my etsy shop in late 2008 using a new form of the same name. Esse literally means "of the essence".
In the world of art and architecture, the quality of the "esse vintage" is often reflected in the statement, "They just don't make things like they used to". To me, the essence of vintage and antique materials is a gift from a time when inspiration was more esoteric than materialistic.
I've been in the business of beads and design, in one form or another, for over 40 years; the mother of 3 very creative, innovative sons (as well as artistic daughters-in-law); grandmother of 6 very talented children; and I've been with the same inventive man for 45 years. We have a lot going on around here all the time, as you might imagine!…
