Welcome to my About Me page!
I'm pretty crazy about all things vintage- most especially vintage jewelry. I didn't mean to pick up the obsession, it all happened quite innocently after I inherited a couple large costume jewelry collections in 2005.

Most everything you find in my store belonged to one of my grandmothers or another relative, as I come from a family of costume jewelry pack rats. Check it out, there are a number of different sections. You'll find a LOT of jewelry, but you'll also find clothing, purses, vanity items, linens, ephemera, china, collectibles and more!
I've branched out into making jewelry with a combination of vintage and new supplies, please check out the Creations Vintage Jewels section of my store.
I also have another store here on Etsy where I sell my handmade jewelry, including seaglass jewelry, and jewelry making supply needs such as chain, bails, bezels, jumprings, earwires, ring blanks, and many types of charms and lockets. Please check it out at:
