The necklace came so beautifully wrapped, it was treat to open. I love the necklace! Living by a bay, I appreciate all things nautical. It's about to become a favorite. (I wore it to go out immediately, BTW.)

I try to 'preserve' history. My goal is to give something old new life so that it can go on living for a long, long time. Because things are old, though, they can break, come undone, and if this is the case with anything you buy from me, at any time... please let me know so that I can repair it. I truly want these to be heirloom pieces.

I create one-of-a-kind jewelry by marrying well-worn watch fobs and vintage baubles. The fact that an item has a history makes it precious and beautiful. I don't recast-- I feel that the uniqueness and rarity of a treasured trinket makes it even more endearing.

Please note that I don't always know what the vintage metals are that I use. I use sterling silver ear-wires and sterling wire for wire-wrapping.
