I'm in love with vintage! Especially vintage jewelry and beading techniques. I started making jewelry in the early 1990s, doing mostly wire work and some bead weaving. Then I discovered the French beaded flower technique and was lucky enough to take some classes from master flower maker Donna DeAngelis Dickt.

I love creating flowers to wear...hair clips, brooches, and bridal accessories. I'm always looking for new ideas.

I've written books on beading (The Complete Idiot's Guide to Beading Basics and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Beading Projects Illustrated), Victorian weddings (Your Victorian Wedding: A Modern Guide for the Romantic Bride), and lots of other topics.

My blog, Romancing the Everyday, is where I write about "seeing life through a vintage lens," my work, and random other subjects that interest me. I hope you'll stop over at www.sylvanavintagedesigns.wordpress.com and take a look.

If you're wondering about the name Sylvana, it means "of the wood" (think woodland creature, nymph). She is an imaginary character I connected with as a child. The vintage photo I chose for my logo captures my idea of what Sylvana would look like.

Thanks so much for stopping by my shop!
