Uppsy Daisy is everything upcycled and everything vintage.

Before my wife started her findings company, she collected vintage stampings and vintage glass stones from old jewelers warehouse stock on the east coast. The majority of what I am listing on Etsy are these original pieces. The ages of this old stock varies from 30-130 years old. It's hard telling what the actual age of some of these pieces are since they still produce a few of these styles. As time goes on, the quality of newly stamped pieces change. The type of metal that's used and also the thickness of the metal. Older pieces were heavy struck in many cases and a higher copper to brass content was used.

Uppsy Daisy is everything upcycled and everything vintage.

Before my wife started her findings company, she collected vintage stampings and vintage glass stones from old jewelers warehouse stock on the east coast. The majority of what I am listing on Etsy are these original pieces. The ages of this old stock varies from 30-130 years old. It's hard telling what the actual age of some of these pieces are since they still produce a few of these styles. As time goes on, the quality of newly stamped pieces change. The type of metal that's used and also the thickness of the metal. Older pieces were heavy struck in many cases and a higher copper to brass content was used.

In addition to the old original brass stampings, they upcycle the vintage glass that we collected. When an item is described as "Upcycled", either some of the piece or all of it is original vintage (the stone or the filigree or both). I use designer sweepings from my wife's findings company (old tooled, but currently stamped brass) to upcycle this vintage glass in most of the pieces. However, some of the pieces are both vintage brass and vintage glass. I will state where the stone and the finding are both original vintage.

Several of our pieces are available in multiples. We purchased about 800 pounds of old mixed stampings about 14 years ago. This inventory was salvaged 20 years before that from a warehouse that was rumored to have been destroyed by a tornado many years ago. These pieces were all mixed. There were several of many styles in the mixed lot, thankfully. What good fortune to discover this hidden treasure. We're trying to get these back out into circulation so other designers and collectors can enjoy them as well. This is why Uppsydaisy prices are so good. We could hold out for better prices, but that wouldn't be cohesive with our mission to Upcycle.
