About


A hobby, a passion, an obsession! My mind is constantly in the fast forward mode with new ideas. With my passion for jewelry, I am constantly searching for new materials to work with. Each component is it's own inspiration to me, I create as I design and everything I make is my own original design. Vintage pieces have always had a special place in my heart. How exciting it is to rescue a neglected vintage treasure, recreate it and give it a new life to be reloved!

Jewelry to be reloved
Most pieces that I work with were forgotten about and uncared for many decades. My designs are created using a combination of vintage and new components. Many vintage pieces were in desperate need of cleaning, polishing, stone replacement and repurposing. That's where I love to step in! Collector's pieces are for the collectors.

Many vintage pieces were in desperate need of cleaning, polishing, stone replacement and repurposing. That's where I love to step in! Collector's pieces are for the collectors. I'll take the cast offs and and give them a new fresh start! I take personal satisfaction once I bring these pieces back liife again. Because of this, I often I think of myself as "The Jewelry Rescuer".

Jewelry care:
Because of the age of the antique pieces I work with, I have special recommendations for the care for my designs. Gently slip in and out of bracelets. Always make sure that your clasps are tightly closed. For extra protection, each piece is mailed to you in a individual pouch. I suggest that you use it to store your piece. Never immerse your vintage jewelry and take extra precautions from getting it wet, particularly when it comes to "paste" rhinestones. If you find it necessary to clean your piece, spray a small amount of Windex on a soft cloth and dab it gently.
Should a buyer ever have a problem with any of my designs, please do not hesitate to contact me! Wear it in good health!

It means a lot to me when I am discovered on this wonderful Etsy site. The world is full of creative people, so when I become a favorite, it rocks my soul. Thank You Etsiers!

P.S. I LOVE to be PINNED (and Repinned) on PINTEREST! ! :-)
