About

I love vintage things for their history and their ability to connect us to our pasts. I also hate to throw things away if they might possibly be useful. So, I find it very satisfying to take a piece of broken, worn vintage jewelry and create something new and beautiful from it. I also appreciate the fact that salvaging and upcycling are very eco-friendly.

I don't live near DC, Richmond or Virginia Beach. I live in the mountains of Virginia near the North Carolina line. I have one kitty, a huge fabric stash, a fairly large yarn stash, and a jewelry stash that's rapidly catching up with both of them.
