Upcycled jewelry and textile accessories make up my “Vintage Fusion” line, which is crafted primarily from vintage, antique, and thrifted materials like fabric, glass crystals, ephemera, and old rusty hardware, along with new materials such as sterling silver and gemstones. Conveying simplicity, nature, industrialism and the early 20th century, the effect is an ethereal, rustic sweetness with a secret!


I create much more than I list on Etsy. If you wish to see more, visit me at the links below and at local indie craft fairs listed under my local events.

Why Buy Vintage/Repurposed?

By buying vintage, you are helping to reduce the demand for the manufacture of new items. Among other benefits, this means a decreased demand for raw material processing and transportation, reduced packaging consumption, reduced production energy consumption and less manufacturing waste. Go you!

My shop is cruelty-free, meaning no animal-derived materials have been used to form my creations. :)

My shop is also eco-friendly, whenever possible minimizing waste; reusing, repurposing, and recycling (including shipping materials); and using many vintage , discarded, and thrifted materials.
