About

I like classic, clean and unique all mixed together in the same bunch. I guess they call that eclectic, don't they? Well, I'm sort of eclectic. I just like to keep an open mind. I also love anything purple, or with bright, rich colors. I think i should also throw in that I may have been born in the wrong era and I think that may reflect in my own personal style and alot of the jewelry pieces that I make and the vintage items that I choose.
I am a self taught jewelry artist, and have been making jewelry and accessories and creating artwork and clothing, etc. for myself for as long as I can remember. Actually it probably started with cutting up my barbie doll clothes as a little girl and remaking their outfits. I have always loved making people over. In school, I was the friend everyone would come to when they needed something to wear for that certain event and I had to help them find that perfect outfit.

As far as my own fashion sense is concerned, if I couldn't find something that I had in my closet, I made it! Only recently did it finally dawn on me that I need to share this with the world. My vintage items are all hand picked by me, and I love the hunt for treasure. You never know what you might find! Vintage clothing is truly a piece of American history.
There are a few places if you live locally to St. Louis where you can find my handmade work:

1. Labadie Station: I sell my jewelry and a few vintage items in a little art shop in Labadie, MO called Labadie Station. If you are ever in that area, or would like to make the trip out to see it, it's completely worth the trouble.
Here is the link to the website:

2. Kaleidoscope: My closeout items go into a shop in Pacific, MO called Kaliedoscope, which is a resale and boutique. To find more information on this shop, see their Facebook page, Kaleidoscope Consignment.

Thanks for visiting, and happy shopping!
