Vintage Bead Cache's Profile

About

The name Vintage Bead Cache refers back to my former training as an archaeologist.

In archaeology, a cache is a purposefully created collection of related objects gathered together and deposited in one location by ancient peoples. A cache can give us a glimpse into the past.

Now, instead of unearthing ancient artifacts, I'm searching for high-quality new old stock jewelry components and offering this collection to jewelry designers and other artists who want to incorporate vintage elements in their work.

I hope my cache of mid-century beads and findings will inspire your creativity and give you a little glimpse into a more recent past.
