ABOUT MY WORK:

Several hours of work go into each original design purchased from *Federikas Vintage Filigree Jewelry*. This guarantees that you are purchasing an authentic jewelry work of art made with exquisite craftsmanship and unsurpassed by any other piece of its kind.

After selecting the best brass components available, each and every piece (filigrees, chains, findings ect.) goes through an intricate process of several steps, all done by hand.

Some of this work includes a multi-step process to hand burnish each piece using my very own eco friendly techniques. Then intricate quality control processes are implemented before…

ABOUT MY WORK:

Several hours of work go into each original design purchased from *Federikas Vintage Filigree Jewelry*. This guarantees that you are purchasing an authentic jewelry work of art made with exquisite craftsmanship and unsurpassed by any other piece of its kind.

After selecting the best brass components available, each and every piece (filigrees, chains, findings ect.) goes through an intricate process of several steps, all done by hand.

Some of this work includes a multi-step process to hand burnish each piece using my very own eco friendly techniques. Then intricate quality control processes are implemented before polishing each component to a beautiful vintage bronze patina.

The filigrees are then customized, hand sculpted and/or layered by us to create unique settings for our vintage glass gems or designs. Then comes one final quality control check with more polishing and the end result is a timeless heirloom quality jewelry design to be enjoyed for many years to come.

Federikas Vintage Filigree…The art of luxury in hand crafted artisan jewelry!

ABOUT COMPONENTS:
I use the best materials including a variety of vintage and new Czechoslovakian, West German glass rhinestones and jewels or brilliant Swarovski crystals. The filigrees I use are stamped from brass and have been used for more than 100 years in the art of jewelry design. You may see many of them on antique jewelry because they are genuine antiques or reproductions made with the original dies still in service today and purchased by the original well established and respected manufacturers who have worked with the likes of Miriam Haskell.

***LETTERS FROM MY CUSTOMERS :)

We have been honored with many beautiful letters and comments from our customers. This is a letter we love to share...Thank you Susan for allowing us to post it!

"I was recently given the Etsy website. I started looking under jewelry and found your website. I saw the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. I told my husband and showed him. It was about 2 weeks prior to Christmas. He thought it was special too.
I proceeded to tell some friends about it. Hoping he would take the website directions in. Two days later I went back to look at the ring and it was gone! I was frantic!

I spent the next several hours on Etsy rings looking for it. After 175 pages, I gave up.
Feeling exhausted and defeated I began to tell him what was wrong.He asked,"How long are you going to be upset". I said,"For a long time!" He then told me he had bought it for me! How great was that. When it came, before Christmas, I felt like a child again. I opened the box and there was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. The picture on your website didn't begin to capture its magic.I've worn it once, but have shown it several times and everyone agrees it is beautiful.I own several expensive rings, but nothing compares to it. It was the emerald cut brass filigree in emerald with the dragonfly on the stone. I wish you would do one in red.
thank you for making this precious ring.You are very gifted.
I'll be buying more pieces and look forward to more
designs. I'm 61 years old, so making me feel like a kid again was no small feat.
thank you again. Susan"

==================================================

I’m thrilled to share with you that author Ellie James chose one of my dragonfly necklace designs to incorporate it in her most recent book “Shattered Dreams”. The "history" she created for this necklace in her book is of a mystical amulet passed down through a family of psychics (I love it).

Here is the link to the necklace: http://www.etsy.com/listing/51957860/dragonfly-necklace-victorian-style

The novel “Shattered Dreams” is about the chilling premonitions of teenage psychic Trinity Monsour as she settles into her new life in New Orleans. This is the exciting first book in “The Midnight Dragonfly” series. Look for it at your favorite bookstore this December 2011.

This dragonfly design is also featured on the cover for "Haunted Destiny" a Midnight Dragonfly bonus short story. THANKS A MILLION Ellie!
