About

All jewelry from my shop is 100% eco-friendly and one of a kind. You will never find the same piece twice in my shop or anywhere else. I handpick vintage beads from flea markets, yard sales, and antique shops for the best and most unique ones I can find. I mix those with other beader's destash beads for a combination of antique and chic.

I started making jewelry as a therapy to a chronic headache disorder I was diagnosed with in 2006. I have had a headache all day, everyday for the last 5 years and making jewelry literally keeps me sane! I found a way to incorporate my love of bright, fun, and colorful vintage necklaces I would see at my local flea market. I started recycling the beads and Antique to Chic was born!

I have hundreds of items not listed, so if you don't see what you're looking for just convo me and we can find…

I have hundreds of items not listed, so if you don't see what you're looking for just convo me and we can find something together or do a custom piece. I welcome custom orders for any occasion. Check out my shop policies for more information on custom orders if you are interested in placing one.

I have been making jewelry for about 5 years. I love the thrill of the hunt at flea markets looking for beads. I got into using vintage necklaces and my flea market finds for my jewelry. I fell in love with the unique beads and the quality and time put into making the beads. Since I reuse old and unwanted jewelry, my designs are eco-friendly and one of a kind. Making jewelry is calming and theraputic to me and lets me express my endless creativity in something someone other than myself will enjoy.

I pride myself on both the fact that I hand make EVERY piece, and that you won't find the same piece of jewelry anywhere else. Each piece I make is one of a kind because of the vintage beads I use.
