Laura Feeney's Profile
My Grandmother's Closet is inspired by my grandmother Pauline, who would trawl estate sales, garage sales, antique markets, etc, looking for pieces that needed a bit of TLC to create her own unique style of jewellery. After many years of (not so) patiently waiting, my mother finally turned Pauline's collection over to me, and I've been inspired by her creativity and ethos ever since!
As my pieces are crafted using vintage and antique beads, there will be flaws and signs of wear, but this lack of perfection is, in my very humble opinion, what makes vintage jewellery so special. As older beads are more likely to be artisan made, shape and size of the beads are not always uniform, adding to their beauty and unique-ness. In describing my pieces, I will always be forthcoming about nibbles, flaws, etc, but I hope you will find as I do that these only add to their charm!…
